Ex-Navy SEAL Robert O'Leary is about to go down in a self-destructive ball of flames. Haunted by the ghosts of his past, he lives on the edge in Bangkok, Thailand, on a steady diet of booze and prostitutes - and milkshakes. The young Thai woman working at the Dairy Queen, one side of her face horribly scarred, draws his interest enough to make him re-examine his life. In the hurt and haunted eyes of this girl, Robert sees his own reflection and knows he must do something to make her life better. If he can manage to redeem himself, maybe the ghosts will let him live in peace. But there is no peace for a trained killer who wants vengeance against those who victimize others. The beast inside Robert demands justice, and Robert cannot say no - even if it means the beast drags him down in an out-of-control spiral of violence that ends in his own death...Click here to READ/CLOSE Synopsis.
When SEAL sniper Robert O’Leary was kicked out of the Navy, he was told he would be fine, that he was a survivor. Not likely. A squid through and through, with serious trust issues, O’Leary’s been trained to kill and is very good at it. But he’s haunted – not by the shots he made, but by the ones he was ordered not to take. The ghosts of the past won’t stand down and let him to adjust to civilian life, and the beast within demands blood and will not be ignored.
While on vacation in Thailand, O’Leary decides to stay in the country that is home away from home for many expatriate veterans. When he falls for a disfigured woman and learns how she was mutilated and tortured, he sees a chance to redeem himself by exacting revenge on her behalf. Suddenly he’s on a mission to make things right and ensure no more girls are victimized.
Together with a group of other American expats, he declares war on East European pimps and drug dealers that terrorize local bar girls. The plan is to hit the Romanians hard and let the Germans take the blame. After the Germans and Romanians start fighting, the Russians will get sucked into the fray. Then they all will die. The trick is not to join them in the dying part. But if there’s one thing O’Leary knows, it’s that any plan can go south in a heartbeat.
This against-all-odds paramilitary action thriller is a triumph for truth, justice, and automatic weapons. It tells of one man’s fall from grace, and the journey he makes to reclaim his sanity, his soul, his life.
