Devastated by an unspeakable tragedy while on the job as a hostage negotiator for the LAPD, Jeff Tally (Bruce Willis) resigns and accepts a low-profile job as the chief of police in the sleepy town of Bristo Camino in Ventura County. On a slow Monday morning Talley's job becomes anything but quiet and sets him on a course that could change not only his professional but personal life forever.

When three delinquent teenagers follow a family home, intending to steal their car, they get more than they bargained for. The trio finds themselves trapped in a multi-million dollar compound on the outskirts of town with no way of escape. Panicked, they take the family hostage, placing Talley in a situation he never wanted to face again.
