As Norman Gustafson) and Rita (Lowe) work alongside each other, their personal relationship hits a bump in the road. Together the POstables are asked to find a letter with a one-in-a-million lottery ticket inside. Oliver's father Joe (Harrison) and beautiful police officer friend Dale assist the investigation, which ultimately changes one couple's lives forever.
