Roman... oh, Roman... just go home.

In the midst of his search, Roman witnesses a brutal killing. Ever the good citizen, he reports the murder but the police discover no evidence - all they have is Roman's testimony. In short order, when another murder occurs, Roman finds himself the suspect. Then, people close to Roman begin to die. Fearful for his freedom and his life, Roman goes on the run, both from the police and the shadowy killers.
