But she forms a fleeting connection with investigative television journalist Derek McGill, whos working on a story about mentally retarded children. Derek treats Nicky tenderly, more compassionately than the boys own father.

Despite Dereks protests, soon they are working together to find the truth about who and why someone framed Derek for the murder.
