ndercover cop Danny Sinofsky is in the middle of a weapons bust when things suddenly turn sour. Shots are fired, his contact lies dead and Danny's world goes completely dark. A specialist informs him that he's suffered a stroke, probably triggered by a head injury he sustained a few days earlier while on the job. Then the doctor delivers even worse news -- his blindness is very likely permanent. Suddenly a man who's always looked out for himself and those he loves, and who lives and breathes police work, finds himself in a dark new world he isn't sure he's strong enough to face. After the enormity of it all sinks in, Danny even contemplates suicide.
