When an honest cop is senselessly gunned down on the means streets of a poverty-stricken city, his fearless father moves into the neighborhood on a deadly mission of vengeance in this gritty urban action thriller starring Steven Seagal and Eddie Griffin. Max Ballester was a good cop who made the unfortunate mistake of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Now Max is dead, the victim of a senseless and seemingly random act of violence. When the murder goes unsolved and the police fail to single out a suspect, Max's father, former government special ops agent Simon Ballester (Seagal), decides to take the law into his own hands. After moving in to the very neighborhood where his son was recently gunned down, Simon embarks on a relentless mission to find his son's killer - constantly probing everyone who crosses his path and never hesitating to crack a skull or two when things get tough. Of course the local gangs don't take kindly to such bold inquiries, especially when they are being conducted by an ex-government agent. Fortunately Simon is more than capable of fending for himself in such dangerous situations, and as the local thugs come out to play he unleashes a fury the likes of which have never been seen even on these treacherous streets.
