A vicious murder falls into the lap of Detective Harrison, a conflicted character haunted by his past. This is to be his final case, but as the pieces of a puzzle begins to follow the bodies that surface, he will find himself being pulled backward, retracing a moment of his life that he wished to forget. And as the killer remains on the loose, questions over the disappearance of the detective's partner will begin to to have an answer, an answer that could change everything and everyone, and time has started to count down to the moment, where the detective must choose between secrets believed to have been buried and justice waiting.

Chasing Ghosts is a true blend of mystery, suspense, and drama. Through the depth of Michael Madsen and the brilliance of a talented cast of actors, we are thrown into a plot, where the characters must solve a deadly game before it's too late, and one man is left clinging to his past, afraid to let go. And as the twists and turns keep on coming, the storyline becomes a roller-coaster of conflict and intrigue, pulling you down into an ending that you never expect. And you will be left haunted by one chasing ghosts.
