Somewhere on the border between Mexico and Arizona lies a town where Riley Finn and his wife Samantha have been assigned to work. Their mission is to track down recent deaths in the desert area, as there's a chance there might be some supernatural occurrence in relation to the deaths. But when they decide to call in reinforcements, they didn't realize that they'd be calling in backup from two different sources; Sunnydale and Los Angeles. Buffy and Angel join the married couple on their investigation and the unlikely team of Sam and Angel begins to make Riley rethink their team in the first place. Riley also notices the increase in crows in the area, possible portents from a poem he remembers from long ago...
