Ian Mitchell (Milo Ventimiglia) is a small-time defense lawyer struggling to raise his daughter in the aftermath of a messy divorce from Laura Mitchell (Nicky Whelan). His life is uprooted when he discovers an intricate box left at his doorstep. Inside the box is a gun, a photo of a stranger, and simple instructions to "expire" this person in 3 days.
Before Ian can wonder if this box is some sick prank the bullets begin to fly. Someone is also trying to kill him. Ian has been “chosen” to join a secret, deadly game that is happening all around us every day – but few will ever know. This is the beginning of an adrenaline-fueled life-or-death ride that will change Ian's life forever and force him to decide what is most important to him.
