Senator Matt Connelly and his family have never been known for their quiet lifestyle and this year's trip to Aspen is far from scandal free.
After a night of family dining and lots of drinking, Matt's son Terry brings home a young waitress for some fun. The problem comes when she is found dead the next morning, and Terry is the main suspect.
Although the family is determined to stick together, Matt's step daughter Beth Connelly is troubled by something she saw the night of the murder. Sheriff Case McCandless is certain Beth is hiding something and in his search for the truth finds himself attracted to her.
The senator will do anything to save his son, including hurting Case's family or even his own.
