A young boy puts a gun in his mouth and pulls the trigger. The police don\'t care. Not about his death or the death of his best friend two months earlier. The dead boy\\\\\\\'s mom seeks help from an old flame that\'s employed as a detective. What she doesn\'t know is that he suffers from acromegaly-a physical deformity resulting in brutish facial features at mid-life. Will his freakish appearance get in the way of solving the case?
