A bank manager, haunted by a violent heist that took the life of a co-worker, teams up with his ex-policeman neighbour to bring down the assailant.

Grillo plays Jacob, the manager of a Cincinnati bank that’s the latest target in a robbery spree. As the hold-up goes horribly wrong, after a security guard is shot dead,

Jacob feels responsible and is haunted by hazy flashbacks.

He then teams up with his next-door neighbour, James (Willis) to track down the attacker and prevent him from pulling off another heist.

While they figure out the thief’s next move, the robber Gabriel (Johnathon Schaech) is already thinking ahead of the game. He is a highly-trained criminal who is heavily armed with high-tech tactical gear.

Retaliation comes with a high price tag after Gabriel kidnaps Jacob’s wife, Christina (Culpo) and daughter (Natalie Sophie Butler). All three men are brought to breaking point after a path of bloodshed ushers in a volatile counter strike.

Why was Gabriel stealing the money? To help his ailing veteran father, who is in a nursing home and receiving dreadful care.
