Fast-paced and fiery, this crime drama revolves around Stanley Hill (John Travolta), an unemployed man who lives with his wife, Vivian (Rebecca De Mornay).
His seemingly straightforward life turns upside down in a split second, when his wife is attacked by thugs in a parking garage. Even as witnesses the shocking incident, Vivian is murdered and the killers disappear. Overwhelmed with guilt, Stanley is haunted by the image of Vivian dying in his arms.
When Detective Gibson (Sam Trammell) and other corrupt police officers are unable to bring the killers to justice, Stanley turns to his old friend Dennis (Christopher Meloni) and decides to take matters into his own hands. It is only then that Stanley and Dennis are found to have a mysterious past that, until now, they have kept very well hidden.
As they inflict their revenge, Stanley uncovers a conspiracy that leads to the upper ranks of government, and those involved in the cover up will realise that Stanley and Dennis are more dangerous than they could ever have imagined. Can the dynamic duo successfully foil the conspiracy?
