Riley North was living a happy and uneventful suburban life with her husband Chris and 10 year-old-daughter Carly. While they may have been struggling to make ends meet their lives were filled with laughter and love. Baited by the idea of a quick money- grab that could ease their financial burden, Riley’s husband Chris is pulled into a potential “business” opportunity involving local members of a powerful drug cartel. Questioning the morality of his prospective actions, Chris ultimately backs out, but this brief flirtation with the criminal underworld leads to a deadly retaliation that alters the course of their lives forever.
During an evening out to celebrate Carly’s 10th birthday at a holiday carnival, Riley and her family are viciously gunned down, taking the lives of both Chris and Carly and leaving Riley in a coma barely clinging to life.
After waking in the hospital to the horrific reality that her family is gone, Riley works with the LAPD to positively identify the shooters. A trial takes place, and despite her eyewitness testimony, the charges are dropped. The killers walk, the result of a collaboration between dirty cops and corrupt judges under the thumb of the cash-rich drug cartel. In a moment, Riley’s former life falls away and she is consumed with the need to do what the “justice’ system wouldn’t do… she sets out to transform herself from ordinary citizen to vigilante.
Channeling her anger into personal motivation, she spends years in hiding honing mind, body and spirit to become an unstoppable force, eluding the underworld, the LAPD and the FBI, as she systematically delivers her own personal brand of justice.
