odds with the organization he once embraced, whose members suspect he orchestrated the slaying of
their former comrade-in-arms. In a startling sequence of events, Marcus must protect a secret that could
shatter everyone's beliefs as he rediscovers his forbidden passion for Patricia. USA, 2010, 90 min.
