5 Men. 4 Walls. 1 Plan. Frank Perry is an institutionalized convict twelve years into a life sentence without parole. When his estranged daughter falls ill, he is determined he make peace with her before it's too late.

Much of the action takes place within the tunnels, sewers and underground rivers of subterranean London.
