When in the middle of a beautiful afternoon, two assailants, Darby (Christian Stolte) and Ames (Josh Stewart), invade Clyde Alexander Shelton (Gerard Butler)’s home, killing and raping his wife and little daughter as he lapsed in and out of consciousness, obviously he was less than thrilled when the District Attorney Prosecutor Nick Rice (Jamie Foxx) chose to deal with Darby and secure his testimony against Ames, instead of taking it to trial and risk his high conviction streak.

Feeling betrayed by the very system he had worked to uphold and abided by, Shelton starts to dish out some justice of his own; both against the criminals responsible for his loss, as well as the corrupt pawns of the system that allows these criminals to continue their violence.

Though in solitary confinement, Shelton continues killing his way to his point, pushing the mayor to place the whole city of Philadelphia, where this all takes place, under lockdown…
