Violence has made Mike arich man and given his wife Paige (McDowell) a lifestyle any woman woulddie for. Gabriel Byrne is Ray Bering, a surveillance expert engaged ina top secret government project. Ray's project could cut policeresponse time by 200 percent using a network of hidden cameras toconstantly view Los Angeles. In short, this project is meant to bringan end to violence.
