Nels (Liam Neeson, 'Taken') is an honest man dedicated to his family, who lives in a small but flourishing resort town in the Rocky Mountains. Everybody in the town loves and appreciates Nels thanks to his job as snowplow in such a wintry landscape, even going so far as to award him with the 'Citizen of the Year' prize. One day, however, Nels's son, Kyle (Micheál Richardson, 'Big Dogs') is kidnapped and murdered by a powerful drug lord and his body is disposed of in a fashion that makes it look as if Michael died from a heroin overdose. Wracked with grief and guilt for doubting the son that he knew, Nels decides to take the law into his own hands. Using the hunting and wilderness skills he has developed over the years, Nels transforms himself into a ruthless man out for vengeance by dismantling the drug ring. Before long, however, Nels finds himself the cause of a turf war between rival gangs, one of which is headed by the loose cannon of a mob boss who goes by the name of Viking. This American remake of crime thriller 'In Order of Disappearance' has the same director, Hans Petter Moland, at the helm and is written by Frank Baldwin. Starring alongside Liam Neeson are Laura Dern ('Jurassic Park'), Michael Eklund ('The Call') and Tom Bateman ('Vanity Fair').
