When attorney Patrick Lanigan discovers his fellow partners at his law firm are involved in a fraudulent scheme from which they stand to gain millions, Patrick fakes his own car-accident death and successfully steals $90 million dollars from the firm’s off-shore bank account.

After taking the money, Patrick jets off to Brazil, where he hides out for the next four years under the name Danilo Silva. When Patrick’s hunters finally locate him in Brazil, his worst fears become his reality. From brutal torture to charges of fraud, theft, and murder, Patrick finds himself having to fight for not only his freedom but also his life.
