    schema:description "NYPD sharp-shooter Bobby is called to a domestic incident. It's an address the police have visited before - a volatile husband and wife who routinely battle out their marriage. But this time it's different. Through his sights from the building opposite, Bobby can see the husband pointing a gun at his wife and child. As the husband moves to shoot his wife, Bobby gets a clear shot and shoots the man in the head. The wife, shaking and terrified, turns to face Bobby through the shattered window and mouths the words 'thank you'. Then all hell breaks loose. The man Bobby has shot is the son of one the city's most important judges. His wife, Catherine, has long been suspected of abusing their son. It seems Bobby has just killed the only man who could have protected the child. Meanwhile, Mr Bosu is back on the streets. A man who committed a crime so heinous, he was sentenced to life in prison at the tender age of twenty-two. A man so seriously committed to death and destruction, he found a way to continue to commit murder, even while behind bars. Now he's been "accidentally" released. In the past, Mr. Bosu has preyed on children. Now, as a freshly released felon, he's trying something new - murder for hire. He's smart, he's unbelievably strong, and after spending twenty-five years locked behind bars, he possesses just a little bit of rage... Bobby, Catherine, Mr Bosu - all three tied together in a devil's pact, in a way they can't imagine..."@en ;
