Storyline

A young man drives to FBI headquarters from Virginia. He is carrying a large amount of cash and has been shot. He also can't remember his own identity. Is he a criminal or an innocent. The title stems from the story of blind men trying to establish what an elephant looks like by feeling different parts of the animal. That story summarizes the challenge facing Erskine and Rhodes as they try to reconstruct what happened. On top of that, a pair of hit men are stalking the boy. Written by Bill Koenig
