Private Investigator, Jackson Garrett, has hit rock bottom since leaving the police force. His life takes a sudden turn when femme fatale, Cherise Duvall, appears and engages him in what appears to be a simple cyber-blackmail case, but suddenly explodes into a quest to bring to the light The Monk, a mob kingpin, unseating him as master of the urban underbelly. Not an easy task as he discovers his nemesis is guarded by personnel with special "abilities." Garrett, blessed with his own special powers, teams up with Blank, a transparent crime lab colleague. Watch as they worm their way into the Monk's domain in this crime drama presented in a film noir style, accompanied by rock artists, The Keepers.
