Summary
Tom Stall finds himself a local hero after he successfully takes down two thugs during an attempted robbery. But his sudden celebrity draws unwanted attention from the outside world, including mobsters Carl Fogarty and Richie Cusack, who insist that Tom is intricately tied to their past. Fogarty begins stalking Tom's wife and children, resulting in a bloody standoff in which Tom must protect his family from what is either a case of mistaken identity or a violent past that's finally caught up with him
