A husband and father, Chris Knight, becomes a "surviving victim." He has, like so many others, lost his loved ones, his wife and five-year-old son, in a random massacre by gun violence. For months, he has agonized and grieved. Unable any longer to witness Knight's depression and despair, his law partner finally intervenes and forces him to take a leave of absence.
The change of scenery and physical activity help. But a dream, at first bringing joy, then the pain of renewed loss, breaks the mental prison of helplessness and uncertainty. Chris returns driven to seek answers for why no state legislatures or Congress have been able or willing to act effectively to control the presence of guns in America. As a result, Chris sets about to develop his own plans to challenge the gun-government complex that has placed gun ownership above all other rights of society. When elements in the gun lobby learn of his plans, things quickly get deadly.
