At the tender age of five, Peter Edwards witnesses the horrific death of his father by a drunk driver. Twenty years later, the nightmares that tortured him for a few years after the accident inexplicably return to haunt him, leading to the breakdown in his relationship with his girlfriend, Janet, and destroying his teaching career. After a particularly graphic nightmare one night, Peter vividly recalls the face of the killer. He is filled with anger so strong, that he becomes consumed with avenging his father’s death. Though many dream of revenge, they lack the courage to act. Not Peter Edwards. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth he tells himself as he embarks on a terrifying trail of vengeance.
