Kirsten Clark, who has been recruited to join a covert government agency, has a special ability. Kirsten is able to be "stitched" into the minds of people who have recently died to use their memories to investigate murders. Taking advantage of Kirsten's ability is Maggie Baptiste, who leads the secret program in which Kirsten works alongside neuroscientist Cameron Goodkin, who is passionate about the work the group does. Other members of the team include socially awkward communications technician Linus Ahluwalia and Kirsten's roommate, computer science grad student Camille Engelson. When things go well, the team is able to use the "stitching" to solve mysteries that otherwise would have gone to the grave with the victims.
