Storyline

On July, 4th in Houston, a teenager finds a human hand in the sewer. Captain Swaggert is investigating the discovery of seven hands over several years, each one precisely severed and with a number tattooed on the palm, but as yet has no leads. The highly qualified Special Investigator, Audrey Macleah, is assigned to join the team and give support to the investigation. When the police department receives a call from a medical doctor in an institution, Audrey visits him. There, the doctor introduces the autistic boy Jordan Thomas to her, disclosing seven hands that the boy had drawn on the wall. Audrey dedicates her attention to Jordan and discovers that he is connected to the serial-killer. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

Audrey Macleah: Well, it seems to me that you don't have a crime scene. And, you don't have any identifiable remains unless you make some assumptions. Now, in order to go forward and profile a suspect, you need a victimology. I mean, without that as a base you really don't have anything, do you?

Allie Walker is a revelation
22 February 1999 | by (Berwyn PA) – See all my reviews

She plays an attractive, but misfit, woman--who is competent at her job, but has no romance. The men around her are either officially correct (Sheen) or ridiculing her behind her back (the rest of the cops). Because of her lack of feminine wiles, she is a loner, and can relate to the isolated boy whom she bonds with.

I would recommend the film, if only for Walker's performance.
