À New York, une fusillade éclate dans un établissement viticole entre deux petits criminels en quête d'héroïne, Michael Trujillo et Ray Jackson, et plusieurs officiers de police chargés de les arrêter. Après avoir abattu les policiers, Jackson s'enfuit avec Trujillo dans les rues de la ville. L'inspecteur Andre Davis est aussitôt mis sur l'affaire, notamment pour sa capacité à traquer voire tuer, mais toujours en légitime défense selon lui, les tueurs de flics. Secondé par détective Frankie Burns, Davis obtient de son chef la fermeture de l'ensemble des ponts de New York et isoler l'île de Manhattan pour appréhender rapidement les deux hommes en fuite. Alors qu'il n'a que quelques heures pour les arrêter, Davis découvre petit à petit qu'une machination se cache derrière cette affaire, impliquant notamment la corruption de la police, dont les preuves se situent dans une clé USB détenue par les fuyards, et celle du FBI.

On January 18, 2003, police, alerted by a frantic 911 call from a distraught pair of teenage girls, arrived at the girls' Toronto area town house to find their mother dead. It appeared the 44-year-old alcoholic, having slipped into a booze-and-pill stupor, drowned in her own bathwater. The death was ruled accidental by the authorities. In the months that followed, however, police were alerted to rumors and reports that the teenagers had been gossiping to friends about the accident. Police began piecing together rumors that suggested the teens might have had a hand in their mother's death. In fact, rather than an accident, the story that emerged portrayed the two teens as cold-blooded, premeditated killers.

Ethan Morgan (Matthew Knight) is a geeky freshman, not trusted by his parents to stay home alone with his little sister Jane. They hire Erica (Kate Todd), a girl from Ethan's high school who is a huge fan of "Dusk" (a parody of Twilight), as a babysitter. However, Erica comes across her best friend Sarah (Vanessa Morgan), and Jesse (Joe Dinicol), Sarah's vampire ex-boyfriend, on the night she is to babysit, and decides to attend a party that Jesse is throwing instead. During a fight between Sarah and Jesse, Sarah ends up at Ethan's house and tells Ethan's parents that she was asked to babysit instead. Ethan has a vision when touching Sarah, and notices she has no reflection in the mirror, leaving him suspicious of her. He confides this in his dorky best friend, Benny (Atticus Mitchell).
