On a warm August night in 1980, six college students sneak into the dilapidated ruins of Philadelphia’s Eastern State Penitentiary, looking for a thrill. But it’s not long before they realize they are locked in. The terrifying night ends in tragedy. As they go their separate ways, trying to move on, it becomes clear that their dark night in the prison has changed them all. Decades later, new evidence is found, and the dogged detective investigating the cold case charges one of them --- celebrity chef Jon Casey --- with murder. Only Casey’s old friend Judith Carrigan can testify to his innocence.  But Judith is protecting long-held secrets of her own. If she chooses to help Casey, she risks losing the life she has fought to build and the woman she has struggled to become.
