Art Beam is working on his doctorate in Psychology. He is studying the effect of hit-and-run deaths on the families of victims and perpetrators alike. It is this study, which brings him to Brice, Wisconsin. Mistaken for a police investigator, Beam sets all sorts of activities into motion, while he examines himself, along with those he sought to examine. Along the way, Beam learns that first impressions are sometimes wrong, and old wounds can fester anew. Join Art Beam as he uncovers the dark side of a small town, and discovers his own human side.
