The lone female detective in the Philadelphia homicide squad works on cold cases - crimes that have never been solved.

Headstrong and resourceful Detective Lilly Rush (Morris) reopens dormant, unsolved homicides that occurred years or even decades ago. Previously, Rush had used her instinctive understanding of the criminal mind to crack current murder cases. Now, this experienced detective is intrigued by new challenges, such as interrogating witnesses to old crimes whose lives and circumstances have since changed, making use of today's new science and finding fresh clues to cases once thought unsolvable. At the same time, she is prepared for certain consequences, namely that her work will open old wounds and may lead suspects to commit new crimes.
When Rush hits a dead end, she seeks advice from her respected mentor, Lieutenant John Stillman (Finn), and Detective Will Jeffries (Barry), who's been around long enough to serve as her link to the past. Also on the team are Detective Nick Vera (Ratchford), a tough cop who's considered the go-to guy for getting a confession, and arrogant Detective Scott Valens (Pino). Rush sees her new assignment as a turning point in her career, and she makes it her business to ensure that no victim is ever forgotten.
