Plot Overview

Paroled after serving 18 years for a murder he didn't commit, an ex-con seeks revenge on two men he blames for his conviction. One is a minor-league mobster who testified at the trial, the other a cop named Ryker, whom he insists mishandled the investigation. Despite the man's threats against him, Ryker is determined to help the man regain a normal life.
