The story is about duty and evil, responsibility and abuse, along with love and sexual prurience. Two main themes run side by side as the story progresses. One is of murder; the polices attempt to solve it and their endeavours to arrest the perpetrator. The second theme is about Ray, a family man, who has his wife and daughter seduced away from their happy home by an unscrupulous predator. Ray tries to get them back and in doing so places himself in great danger.
