With eerie parallels to The Pied Piper, a school bus of children goes missing. Kidnappers seeking ransom refuse to negotiate with anyone except for Thalia, who is connected to the case on multiple levels.
The parents of the missing children scramble to come up with the outrageous ransom demanded by the kidnappers. Meanwhile, Thalia and her family are ostracized as questions about her involvement reach a boiling point.
