The social event of the season has arrived and the entire town is buzzing for the Big Heart Charity Awards Banquet. As the event begins, everyone is on the edge of their seats to see who will take home an award – everyone except for aspiring detective Simon Sutherland who can be found taking a nap in the back. The rookie cop would much rather be solving a real crime instead of spending the evening babysitting a room full of well-dressed philanthropists. But when the recipient of the evening’s most prestigious award goes missing before he can accept his honor – suddenly the event takes a dark turn. As a bloody clue surfaces, it becomes clear that a horrible crime has taken place. Inexperienced Officer Sutherland jumps at the chance to solve the mystery and win his own award – a detective shield. But will he be able to uncover the truth when everyone is a suspect?



Simon, a wise-cracking know-it-all, usually tries to find the shortest/easiest path to success – which often gets him into trouble. Coming from a long line of respected detectives, Simon feels the pressure to make detective as soon as possible even though he is fresh out of the police academy. Living in the shadow of his Police Chief father, and Detective Uncles, Simon has a huge chip on his shoulder and refuses to work with a partner, insisting that he doesn’t need anyone to be a success.


Brad, an overachiever with a broken moral compass, is a photographer for ‘Tea Magazine’ – which is a leading publication for celebrity gossip. Brad is known to be so quick with his camera that he can capture a scandal before it happens. Brad dreams of being a wildlife photographer and wants to fund his own year long expedition capturing wildlife in the Amazon. He is only a few ‘money-shots’ away from having enough money to quit his job and follow his dreams. He despises the self-indulged celebrities he photographs and does not feel guilty about capturing the intimate details of their lives for public entertainment.
