A serial killer on the loose, Daniel and his partner Rosemary patrol the streets. During their patrol, Daniel stops by a diner and talks to a waitress named Grace. Without thinking about it, Daniel and Grace step into the bathroom to get better acquainted.

Another murder occurs and the same question is asked, "when is this psycho going to be caught?" Feeling that her partner is under pressure, Rosemary invites Daniel to her parents' anniversary party. At the party, Daniel shows up and the two partners share a dance together. That night after the party, Grace sits in her car, parked across the street from Rosemary's house. The next morning, Rosemary wakes up in her treehouse, and Daniel still asleep. A rush in panic happens when Rosemary thinks Daniel is dead but wakes him up. On their morning patrol, Rosemary steps into the diner for two cups of coffee but is egged on by Grace about her relationship with Daniel.

That night, Rosemary stays inside, and watches a movie with Daniel. The next morning, Rosemary gets a rude awakening when she finds the severed head of the serial killer's recent victim. Upset and furious with detectives accusing her, Rosemary brushes it off. Back on patrol, Rosemary is shot and rushed to the hospital. Daniel feels guilty and stays with her until her mother tells him to go home. The next morning, Daniel steps out onto his front porch and finds a box of churros. He quickly informs the detectives of the newfound evidence, and they take the box. A visit to see Rosemary, feeling guilty still for her being shot. At a bar, Daniel drinks his worries away and meets a man named Ace, who is a ladies' man. Back at his apartment, Daniel returns home and learns that Ace lives in the same apartment complex.

The next morning, another victim found, this time it is one of the girls that Ace spent the evening with at his apartment. With the crimes getting closer to Daniel and surrounding him, he is suspended from duty. Now rogue, Daniel buys guns and seeks out who he believes is the killer. He teams up with a brothel owner who wants the person caught. Word gets out to Daniel from Rosemary's mother that Rosemary is missing. While getting the word about Rosemary, Rosemary is held hostage by Grace. In a fight for her life, Rosemary gets free but is stopped by Grace. Seconds later, Daniel stops Grace, but she gets to her car. In his rush to stop her, Daniel gets to his car and chases after Grace. The pursuit stops as Grace's car crashes and comes to a gun being pointed at Grace's head. Just as it is about to end, Daniel is shot in the chest by Ace, who is really Grace's brother. As Ace is about to finish off Daniel, Grace is runover by the car Rosemary is driving. An angered and upset Ace shoots at Rosemary but is rundown.
