From all appearances, Jack Ruskin is a mild-mannered and well-respected lawyer practicing in New York. But he is also living every parent's nightmare: his teenage daughter has recently been the victim of a brutal and horrific attack by a sexual predator. As Jack tries to care for his daughter, his constant sorrow and pain gradually grow into hot blooded rage. It turns out that her attacker has along history of sexual crimes and - as is the case with many repeat sex offenders - was allowed back on the streets to wreak more harm once he did his time in jail. As Ruskin's rage builds, he is convinced that it is finally time to take matters into his own hands...but how far will he go to make certain that justice is done?
