Former Special Ops pilot, Maya has just buried her husband.

Only a few months ago, her sister was murdered.

With her loved ones gone, Maya tries to hold it together for the sake of her young daughter Lily.

As the police investigate the murder of her husband, Maya is told that both her sister and husband were killed with the same gun. 

How could that be? 

The former pilot then uses her military skills to investigate the connection.

As she begins to piece it together, the fall-out of her last mission continues to plague her; she learns her sister frequented a strip club prior to her death; and her dead husband is caught on camera playing with Lily.

Will Maya discover the truth or is she losing her mind?
