On a routine stake out, a detective's partner is killed by a criminal on the run. The detective tries to hunt down this murderer based on glimpses of him that he saw, the gun he was carrying for example, but all of his attempts are futile. One day while sitting on a park bench the two come face to face once again. No matter what brought them together, be it fate, coincidence, or just sheer luck, the detective is determined to bring this murderer to justice; and the murderer is determined to do whatever it takes to escape it.
