Stumbling across a woman who needs help, following the brutal murder of her husband and the kidnapping of her twin boys, he is faced with a dilemma. No one wants to help her, neither the hotel nor the corrupt police. The mob is involved and in control and will go to any lengths to collect a huge ransom.
