Single father Tom Hawkins’ son is abducted and murdered. When informed by the FBI, led by agent Mike Sheehy, that the homicide appears to be part of a string of crimes carried out by an enigmatic sect, Hawkins inappropriately inserts himself into the investigation and embarks on a cunning path of revenge. Tom reaches deep into his religious beliefs for guidance but once the improbable killer is revealed, the aftermath can only be sorted out by God.
