The film opens with McBride being hired by a wealthy socialite named Ellie Barton (Marta DuBois), whose beloved dog has been kidnapped.

As McBride begins to investigate the case, he discovers that there is more to it than just a simple dog napping. It soon becomes clear that Ellie's dog was taken as part of a larger scheme involving a group of criminals who are blackmailing wealthy pet owners into paying exorbitant ransoms for their stolen animals. McBride works to unravel the web of deception and find the culprits, but he quickly becomes a target himself as the bad guys begin to see him as a threat.

Along the way, McBride also faces personal challenges. He struggles to connect with Ellie, who is standoffish and dismissive of his efforts at first.
