From the director of Taken, Pierre Morel, comes this action-thriller starring Jennifer Garner. She plays Riley, an LA banker who lives with her husband and daughter, in financial straits. When her husband is wrongly implicated in a heist of the local drug cartel’s fortune, the family is gunned down at a picnic. 

Only Riley survives the injuries, and in court, Garcia (the boss) and his minions are dismissed without any semblance of a fair trial. With nothing left to lose, she begins to prepare for revenge against the same cartel…

Also starring Jeff Hephner, John Gallagher Jr, Juan Pablo Raba, and John Ortiz.
