The story follows Martin Murphy, the survivor of a mass shooting that claimed the life of his girlfriend Jesse and nine others. A bullet to the head has curiously left Martin (Marty) with the strange ability of knowing the truth about anyone he makes eye contact with. The only explanation he has for his extrasensory perception is that the bullet somehow cleared a view for his “third eye.”
While Marty tries to cope with grief following the violent death of his girlfriend, he also discovers terrible truths about everyday people.
Marty makes the decision to try to find Jesse’s killer - and in the process, do something about the free roaming villains he comes across. He decides to dish out his own justice, but his timid nature leads to him seeking help. He finds that in his eventual partner; a simple, strong behemoth named Simon.
One of the duo’s “cases” leads to crime boss Carlyle Scott, and eventually to the gunman that killed Jesse; but Simon’s inability to know the truth himself tests his loyalty and forces him into the decision of saving his partner’s life, or helping a newfound friend.
Oh, and Marty’s dog Stu gets mixed up in all of it too...
