A surprise birthday celebration for her mother sends Kate Pierce to Atlanta—her hometown. Years have passed since she last visited the city, and she's still haunted by memories of the violence she endured there. Reluctantly, Kate agrees to go and sets off for a long weekend with family.
News has surfaced of the Fulton County Butcher—a man who is dismembering women and leaving a trail of body parts—and Kate's childhood neighbor Janine Reilly, now an undercover Vice officer, has gone missing. The police fear Janine has been abducted by the butcher.
Kate offers to help the struggling Atlanta PD, who at this point have nothing to go on, but it's a challenge to convince them that she can find Officer Reilly and capture the killer by using her psychic abilities.
Kate's nightmares begin when the police agree to bring her on board, yet her dreams are leading her to an unassuming local man who isn't even a blip on law enforcement's radar. The PD is slow to believe Kate's theory, but when she goes missing too, her claims can't be ignored. As time ticks away, Atlanta's finest need to find Kate and Janine before they're the next victims on the deranged man's kill list.
