In Philadelphia, ex-US Marine Ranger Max Carver has just been convicted and incarcerated for bank robbery, the $20 million from the robbery not recovered by the authorities. With widowed Max in prison, his teenaged son, Steven Carver, becomes the ward of his sister, Julia Carver, an up and coming fashion designer. When they were teenagers, Julia was in a relationship with Max's best friend, who ended up being a fellow Marine Ranger named Kurt Warnecke, now a music store employee. Max and Kurt also once played in a jazz combo together. While Kurt was the one who initiated the break up, Julia has kept her distance from him largely for not watching out for such troubles in which Max is currently. Julia receives a postcard from Max in prison.

Decent TV movie with a bunch of Canadian talent
20 October 2014 | by juneebuggySee all my reviews

This wasn't bad for a Lifetime made for TV movie -although still completely forgettable. The acting is decent, from a bunch of Canadian talent including James Gallanders, Kristen Holden-Reid and Tricia Helfer (which is always nice to see.) The story is intriguing enough with a decent mystery, a bit of a romance and a nice twist.

Tricia Helfer plays Julia Carver who gets a postcard from her incarcerated brother that starts her on a race for millions in stolen cash. When her nephew (who she is raising) is kidnapped the hunt for the stashed loot intensifies. Julia teams up with her brothers Army Ranger buddy and together they follow the amassing trail of clues that will eventually lead to a trade for her nephews life.
