Authorities find a video of Maurice confessing to what happened on the boat, but it raises more questions than answers. When Maurice discovers that family friend and local officer Vinnie can see him, he asks him for help.
As Maurice comes face to face with more “seers,” they realize they’ve all mysteriously received the same photograph of a family event from the past. After speaking with the medical examiner, Vinnie is convinced something is not right.
