In this vigilante story, Scudder is an unlicensed private detective, ex-NYPD cop and recovering alcoholic haunted by regret. When a series of kidnappings targeting the wives of drug dealers escalates to murder, Scudder agrees to help a heroin trafficker (Dan Stevens) and his brother (Boyd Holbrook) hunt the two men down and bring them to justice. Scudder gets help from an ex-colleague (Ruth Wilson) and a homeless 17 year-old artist, TJ (Astro.) The trick is to operate just outside the law without crossing the criminal line.
The film’s creative team includes cinematographer Mihai Malaimare ("The Master"), production designer David Brisbin ("TWilight: New Moon"), editor Jill Savitt ("Premium Rush"), costume designer Betsy Heimann ("Jerry Maguire") and sound mixer Michael Barosky ("Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close").
