Brody arrives in the wine country of California just in time to attend the funeral of his father.

With the help of Tori Anderson, Elliot's soon to be ex-fiance, Brody tries to find out who tried to kill him and why. At the same time he and Elliot are trying to find out what happened between their parents and why they had been separated at birth.
