David and Cheryl Burroughs are living the dream – married, a beautiful house in the suburbs, a three-year-old son named Matthew – when tragedy strikes in the worst possible way.
David awakes one night to find himself covered in blood, but not his own – his son’s. And while he knows he did not murder Matthew, the overwhelming evidence against him puts him behind bars indefinitely.
Five years into his imprisonment, Cheryl’s sister arrives – and drops a bombshell.
She shows him a photograph that a friend took on vacation at a theme park. The boy in the background looks familiar – and even though David realises it can’t be, he knows it is.
It’s Matthew, and he’s still alive.
In order to find Matthew and clear his own name, David knows he must discover the real story of what happened that devastating night.
But first he must attempt the impossible: escape from prison…
