In the present, Mitch is running for his life. Thinking he's lost his pursuers, he talks to Abby and Ray on his cell as he heads toward a rendezvous with Andrew. Three weeks before, watched by the Mob, Mitch is defending Judd Grafton, accused of murdering a local thug: Judd's been operating a casino at a bar owned by his friend John.
