A small-town man's violent act of courage blossoms into a chain reaction of chaos.

Transformed into a media darling overnight, Tom's act soon carries unfavorable consequences for his life and his family's safety, leading his children to confront their own problems with similar measures of violence and sending Tom into an emotional tailspin after a gangster believing him to have past ties to the mob begins to stalk him.
