Dean Thompson has been a man on the edge since he helped his buddy Colby Thorne bury the body of Colby's hated stepdad, Ross Nixon.

But when the surfer dude wakes-up on the beach in a confused state, he has even more to worry about when he has a flashback to the previous night where he remembers posting a letter to the police confessing to knowing where Ross's body is buried!
