Harry Jenkins, an honest lawyer, seeks truth and love
in a world darkened by fraud and deceit. Years back,
Elixicorp, a company developing a drug to forestall
memory loss, defrauded millions from Toronto's elite.
But since then, no one has been able to find the money.
This long buried treasure has poisoned the lives of
all who seek it.
His elderly client, Norma Dinnick, teeters between
lucidity and madness in her dark world of paradoxical
claims. When she instructs Harry to sue the other claimants
for the Elixicorp shares, one of the litigants is fatally
shot in open court at Osgoode Hall. The murder weapon
is an ornate, silver pistol, which is both a means
of betrayal and a gift of love. Peter Saunderson, an
old acquaintance of Harry's from law school, surfaces
to frame his own wife and lover with the courtroom
murder and to implicate Harry in the scheme.
Harry and his father have been estranged for years.
Stanley is found unconscious at the foot of his cellar
steps, a gun in his hand. Waking from his coma, he
asks Harry's forgiveness for a long-buried wrong. This
ugly .38 calibre gun becomes the means whereby love
and forgiveness is found.
Beset with questions, Harry turns to the beautiful
Natasha who guides him to the answers and an understanding
of the final paradox.
