The Story: LAPD Detective Frank Gates is a hard working cop, a loving father and husband, and an all around good man. But beneath his gleaming veneer of happiness and stability lay a buried past wrought with secrets and violence.
After letting a bust go bad in New York he fled for his life and changed his identity. Now, nearly 15 years later, his past has caught up with him and the truths he worked so hard to hide are clawing their way to the surface.
As he contends with an efficient and ruthless hit man sent after his family, Frank enlists the aid of his partners to put a stop to the on-coming assault. As the hit man zeros in and Frank is running out of time, he makes the only move he has left… the go on the run again, this time to secure the one secret he has left that could turn the tables around and turn him from the hunted to the hunter.
