The film then switches protagonists, as we follow Avery Cross as he struggles with the guilt of killing a fellow young father and the wholesale corruption of his local police department. Avery ultimately decides to burn his bridges with the department, exposing his corrupt colleagues and launching a new career for himself, as he becomes a prosecutor for the local DA's office.]] [[spoiler:It's at this point that the film AGAIN switches protagonists as move ahead about 16 years, as the film now focuses upon Avery Cross and Luke Glanton's children.

Unfortunately, his son AJ has begun to rebel and do drugs, forcing Avery's dad to take him in hopes that he can keep his son out of trouble.

When the truth about their fathers is revealed to Jason, Avery must save his son and stop Jason from self-destructing like his dad did.]]
