He confronts a desperate criminal, with ties to the mafia, who plans a robbery and an escape to a mystery woman.
Dawson tracks the fugitive wherever the trail leads, to regain his self-esteem.

Meanwhile, Dawson meets Cindy Baxter, age 34, who has taken a cruise to forget her traumatic past and break out of her lonely life.
Their paths cross in their quest for hope and happiness....
