Synopsis

It's 2002 and Andy Eastman's life is falling apart. Eager to begin his summer vacation, Andy returns home to find a note from his wife: she's left him, sick of his laissez-faire attitude toward life. Instead of confronting his problems, he agrees to help a friend find out what's wrong with her husband, a lawyer recently fired by Boeing, Andy's employer. Andy uncovers a conspiracy involving Boeing, the lawyer, and rapacious co-conspirators-and all hell breaks loose: his son and two of his son's friends are abducted and the lawyer goes missing. Bewildered, dismayed, increasingly desperate, Andy shatters his self-image as a Vietnam vet turned pacifist, a man more prone to turn a cheek than throw a punch. He has no choice. He must rescue the boys-it's his only hope to save his marriage and the lives of those he cherishes.
