An upper-middle-class couple's life is destroyed when their only child is kidnapped and killed. Obsessed with revenge, the couple seizes an opportunity to kidnap the killer.
Bill Moseley plays a creep, which is not far removed from his real life persona. Not that Moseley abducts and kills children, but he is something of a jerk, so the desire to torture him is understandable. Having to sit through most of his films is torture for the audience.
But more seriously, this film comes down to two things: it can either be seen as the latest film of "torture porn" (though certainly not the most graphic), or it can be seen as a moral argument about torture and revenge. Ultimately, it probably falls more into the former category even if it aims for the latter. Any lesson that is supposed to be learned simply is not.
