Lott has devoted the remaining years of his life to personally pardoning criminals by destroying crime scene evidence. Driven by his faith in the healing power of unconditional forgiveness, he and his uniquely talented team of outcasts troll the streets waiting to intercept the right 911 call. Nearby, Melissa wakes to find her lover dead after drugging herself in a misguided attempt to act out a sexual fantasy. The team intervenes to dispose of the body, but when Melissa's husband arrives and is revealed to be the murderer, the members are pinned into a violent confrontation and forced to become killers themselves.
