As the English-raised son of Russian exiles with a mafia history, Alex has spent his life trying to escape the shadow of his family's criminal past by building his own legitimate business and forging a life with his girlfriend. When his family's past murderously returns to threaten the life he has built, Alex is drawn into the criminal world and forced to confront his values to protect those he loves. What starts out as a story of survival and revenge becomes an epic tale of one man's struggle against the lures of corruption in the modern world and in himself.
