Jessica Shepard is a San Francisco Police Officer who's just been promoted to the homicide department. For her first assignment, she has to investigate the murder of a man she's had sex with a few weeks before. On the next days, two other corpses are discovered. Both men were also former lovers of Jessica. She sees Dr. Melvin Frank and tells him that she can't remember where she was at the time of the murders. Little by little, Jessica convinces herself that she may be the perpetrator of the crimes she investigates.
