Jason Shaw is a police officer in Huntsville, California. A former US Marine, he is a happy father and husband who takes his job seriously and has just been transferred from narcotics and vice to the Huntsville Gang Task Force Unit. A month after the transfer, mysterious attacks begin one night when a criminal sets a trap outside the Shaw home.
Although the Shaws escape the clumsy attempt, there are no suspects, and Shaw believes the amateurish trap might have been a juvenile prank. As time passes, however, the attacks escalate. Who is trying to terrorize the cop and his family? Is it an ex-con Shaw put away or gang member with a beef?
Someone is desperately trying to put Shaw in the ground, but the police have no leads. As a media frenzy ensues after every attack, a community once thought to be safe falls further into the grip of panic and terror. Meanwhile, Shaw will do what it takes to keep his family safe, even if it means taking matters into his own hands and letting the attackers know that no one messes with a cop on his own beat.
