After the murder of his brother, an avid surfer, tries to escape his troubles in life by joining a club that would show him the world. That club is the US Marines. Before he has time to catch the next wave, his division is deployed to a hot zone in the Middle East. One wrong move delivers him into the hands of a murderous enemy combatant who holds him for a ransom, and as a political pawn. John uses the death of his brother to refocus a plan of revenge on his captor. His fury and fear could become more dangerous than the war itself.
