Tory (Francia Raisa of The Secret Life of The American Teenager) is a teacher at an exclusive Manhattan private school who has a secret bounty hunting past but is determined to have a normal life in New York City. Forced out of retirement for one final capture to help save the family business, Tory reluctantly returns home to help save the family business.

When Tory’s bounty hunter ex-boyfriend (Mike “The Miz” Mizanin) joins the action, her justice-loving Jersey girl side reawakens and she must balance both her old flame and new high-class beau.
