Fraternal twins Tom and Theresa have always been close, though they have chosen to follow different paths. Tom is a successful up-and-comer in the fast-moving, high-paying world of computer programming. Though his long hours and relentless grind keep him single, he enjoys family life vicariously, spending a lot of time with Theresa, her husband, and her young son. Police Sergeant Theresa is finishing out her final weeks on the street before stepping into her new role behind the desk, running the academy. It is a welcome move that will give her more time with her family. But when Theresa surprises a group of drug runners while running an errand for Tom, she is gunned down and mortally wounded. Tormented by guilt, Tom swears to avenge her. To do so, he must channel his fallen twin’s grit and transform himself from a white-collar tech geek to a hardened warrior.
