Having turned his back on his family and the lure of crime in his younger years, Victor Escoto returns to the streets of his youth, now a detective for the Phoenix Organized Crime Bureau. With the streets overrun at the height of a meth epidemic, Victor comes face to face with the brutal economy of the Cartels and finds himself pitted against his estranged family that he once left behind. As a key player in a high-profile drug bust that rouses the wrath of the Cartel, the hunter now becomes the hunted. When the law he gave himself to serve fails him, he is forced to take extreme measures to protect his family.
