Bonnie's job – cleaning up after violent homicides – is not for the faint hearted. But for Bonnie it's a business she has built from the ground up; a service that she can be proud of. By day she sells make-up under her rather too amorous boss, a strange but necessary contrast to her gruesome night job. Working two jobs isn't easy, but with a husband like Duke, an unemployed drunk, she needs the money.
Blood soaked carpets and bullet holed plaster work might have become the norm, but when she notices a connection between a spate of senseless murders in which people inexplicably kill their loved ones, her tough exterior starts to crack. The links she sees sound crazy even to her, and can only be explained by the supernatural.
