Live tells the story of private detective Eddie Hill, hired to find Linda Johnson, whose abduction was live-streamed on Facebook. Eddie lays out a timeline for detectives from interviews with friends, Linda’s Facebook page, and security camera footage. Two persons of interest emerge, a mysterious man named Josh Jones and an anonymous hacker wannabe, Patrick Flannagan. As Eddie digs deeper, Patrick turns out to be an unsuspecting ally while Josh becomes more of a suspect. Everything comes to a dramatic conclusion when Eddie is notified by Patrick, while being grilled by the detectives, that he has found Linda Johnson and is going to live stream her rescue. The rescue is short lived when Patrick is violently snatched from behind. The live video POV shifts to YouTube and the feed is being operated by an unknown stringer, a freelance ambulance chaser who is streaming an active crime scene at Linda Johnson’s house. Dead or alive, Linda and Patrick’s demise is far from certain as Eddie uncovers the horrors of the dark web.
