The film stars Laurence Fishburne (“Black-ish”) and Thomas Jane (“Hung”) who additionally produced the film together.
Carter (Thomas Jane), a troubled veteran, gets a chance at redemption by protecting a 12 year-old girl from a deadly assassin named Sade (Laurence Fishburne) after she witnesses a murder. Holding a shotgun with a single shell, he engages in physical and psychological warfare in a desperate fight for the girl's life. Suspense and action build as Sade and Carter continue their battle of wits. Sade uses anything and everything to his advantage; he wants to get under Carter's skin.
