Alex Godman is the English-raised son of Russian exiles with links to the mafia. He has spent his life trying to separate himself from his family's criminal associations -starting his own legitimate business and building a loving relationship with his girlfriend.
But when his family's past returns to threaten him, Alex is forced to confront his values to protect the ones he loves. His struggle for freedom and survival will be put to the test against the lures of corruption, which threaten to thrust him deep into the world of organized crime.
