The story mostly takes place seven years after Taggart’s firing. Now a struggling private eye, he has sobered up and coupled with Natalie (Natalie Martinez). Taggart has avenged the rape and death of her sister, and their relationship hinges on that. Natalie is an actress making her first indie film and Taggart is not supportive, for no particular reason. He then grows ridiculously jealous watching her in a love scene with a co-star, in a subplot that goes nowhere.
