He had a choice to live or let die.

In the minds of audiences, iconic actor, Jamie Dent, simply is the dashing, super spy he’s been playing on screen for decades. Loved by young and old, men and women, Jamie has had a charmed life… on set. Go home with him, however, and you’ll find a basket case. Raging alcoholic who can barely get himself out of bed. 3 estranged kids and an estranged ex-wife who refuses to take a dime from him, which is good since he has an unwieldy debt to the mob. To be honest, he’s thought about ending it all, many times. But, then, once a year he dazzles the public as the tuxedo-wearing, slicked-back spy and the shot of self-esteem gives him a short reprieve.

But when a break-in turns violent and, in an attempt to kill Jamie, the intruder accidentally shoots his autistic son, Jamie’s life suddenly gets turns upside down and into a real-life spy novel.

As his son fights for his life and his other kids cling to him for support, we begin to realize that the break-in was not random and the very last person we’d expect had hired a hitman to kill Jamie… and this hitman has no intention of stopping until the job is done.

Discovering his kids and the profound meaning of fatherhood for the first time, Jamie must right a wrong and finally step up as the real-life hero only he never believed he could be.
