***SPOILERS*** It's when Sally Hansen's, Estella Warren, husband Eddie,Scott Gibson, was killed in a home invasion of their new built home in Hammerhead NY that she decided to quit her job as a math teacher and check out the rumors that lead to Eddie's murder. Eddie was involved in a drug sting that ended up with some $250,000.00 worth illegal drugs missing. It's been suspected by almost the entire town including it's top drug pusher Gary Sharp, J.D Nicoholsen, that Eddie stole the drugs so he can sell them himself. Coming to help Sally out is Eddie boss and good friend in the town's police department Capt. Vic Bochner, Art Hindle, who's sure Eddie was innocent and is going to stick his neck out and put his job on the line to prove it.
As Sally soon finds out almost the entire town is hooked on drugs and and the drugs are being supplied, with a gun pointed to his head, to the junkies by the towns long time druggist the sweet and kindly Stan known to everyone in town as "The Candy Man" played by Richard Fitzpartick. It's "Candy Man Stan" who gives the drugs out or sells them to his many costumers including his 16 year old drug addicted daughter Kristen, Tamra Hope, prescription or not so long as they stay doped up and pay for them. As we soon learn Stan's business depends on the drug trade and like he says he's only providing a service to he community and nothing else. But the real reason is that if he doesn't he'll end up dead courtesy of the local mob who's supplies him with the drugs and want's their cut, in cash, out of them.
