Jarvis Mann is a private detective, whose business thrived on the mundane

Paying the bills by shadowing cheating spouses

Getting in the middle of messy divorces

And working for the fat-cat insurance companies running down false claims

On a Winter’s Sunday afternoon, a young man graces his office steps

His words coaxing with the simple declaration of “Please”

Convincing Jarvis to help find a valuable missing Ernie Banks rookie baseball card

With a dry sense of humor, Jarvis tours the Denver neighborhood with the lad

Door to door, friend to friend, until a clue leads to a surprising discovery

A young man’s personal pain revealed

Witnessing a friend’s act of self-sacrifice

Both teenagers teaching Jarvis a life lesson

That will shape him with new hope and resolve
