After the death of his decorated father, and learning he has terminal cancer, Michael Burton faces the prospects of leaving the world without making his mark. Fate, it would seem, has a plan for Michael after he discovers his father has literally written the book on crime in his city. He’s no cop, and with little time, the only way to right the wrongs of so many criminals is in blood.
Michael’s past collides with his future as he tries to reconcile what it truly means to be a positive or negative presence in this world. With each kill, from his first to his last, Michael struggles with his choices. Is he a soldier, a terrorist, or just a cold blooded killer? Only through the eyes of those closest to him can he find redemption, or crucifixion.
