It's peaceful in a canyon high above Los Angeles... until tires screech, and a car hurtles down a hill to land upside down, its three passengers unconscious. Detective Michael Britten of the LAPD is recounting the instant when his life changed forever to his new, department-mandated shrink, Dr. John Lee. Britten doesn't want to start with the beginning of this story; he wants to start with right now. He's back on the job, working with a new, young partner, Detective Vega, who Britten thinks has been assigned to make sure he's okay. And yes - he is okay. Cut to a crime scene, city street, rainy night. A cab driver has been shot. Witness Mr. Weaver, who lives in a nearby building, didn't actually see the crime, but did see a guy run into an alley. Noticing a surveillance camera on a nearby building, Britten sends Vega to get the tape. When Vega tries to thank Britten for getting him promoted to detective, Britten insists he didn't request Vega. The higher-ups probably didn't want to waste anyone else's time babysitting him after the accident.
