A small Mid-Atlantic college town looses one of its most admired businessmen (Scott Mastersen) due to a tragic auto accident. His son (John) must carry on, but discovers some troubling things about his dad's past and how it might have a bearing on his death. John's daughter also is missing from the town's annual talent show and her disappearance is suspicious at best. The town is nestled in a picturesque valley where the bald eagle population is on the rebound thanks to the efforts people like John who nursed a young eaglet back to health at the family's farm. It's a story of loving friendships and family intrigue.
