Ismaël joined the army and went to Iraq to escape gang life in Los Angeles. With a series of experimental procedures, the army did something that changed him. He, in turn, did something that continues to torment him... Back home, diseased both physically and spiritually, he just wants to be at peace with his family. His former gang, however, has anything but peace in mind. When they take his family from him, he unleashes his inner hell onto the streets of the City of Angels. Drugs and guns, grenades and mad dogs, corrupt cops and good little monsters: it seems nothing can stop Ismaël Vasquez from getting fiery vengeance.
