When an Afghan War veteran turned police officer who deals with the trauma she endured on the battlefield, discovers that her former brother-in-arms is a vigilante targeting local criminals, she is forced to choose between being a loyal friend and upholding the law.

Synopsis

Following their last mission to Afghanistan, Olivia and Keith are plagued with nightmares about losing one of their military brothers.

 

Despite having difficulty adapting to everyday life, Olivia has re-established her relationship with Patricia, her long-term partner. She has become a detective within the New York police department. On the other hand, Keith becomes a teacher hoping to steer young teens on the right path, but his demons take a toll on him--forcing him to find a cure for his nightmares.

ATF Special Agent Victor Hernandez, who disapproves of his daughter’s life decisions, is sent to New York to locate a vicious criminal only known as “Sombra.” While trying to bring down Sombra, Victor longs for a reconciliation with his daughter Olivia.

As Olivia investigates a string of murders of known criminals, she learns Keith has secretly taken justice into his hands, and she confronts him.

Keith asks Olivia for help in carrying out rough justice, but Olivia refuses. However, after one of Sombra’s men attacks Patricia, Olivia joins Keith to hunt for Patricia’s attacker.

During the final showdown, Olivia must choose between reclaiming her family’s future or rectifying a past mistake.
