Taglines: Payback is a Mother.
When her father dies, Shaun Russell (Gabrielle) drives her two children to spend the weekend at the house she grew up in, before it’s sold. The house is large and fancy, with an impenetrable state-of-the-art security system. Or so she thought.
A man breaks in and takes her son and daughter hostage, but when another man attacks Shaun outside the house, she fights him off with astonishing martial arts ability. Once he’s down, she runs to the house where she sees her two children are being held by the first man as a screen comes down and covers the window.
Shaun gets a call from him, and he reveals that he’s only one of several men who are in the house. He tells her they want something from the house and if she and her kids want to survive, they’d better cooperate. Not willing to give up easily, she disables the lights and disappears from sight. An apparent ninja, she breaks in and starts to hunt down each of the men in an attempt to rescue her kids.
