Management consultant Frank Stein gets blackmailed by his boss Monica "Mo" Hussein into joining a secretive group of vigilante killers. The group is called the Network, and its members target civilians that use corporate influence to enable and support genocide, hate-crime, and anti-democratic activity.
As Frank is forced to turn himself into a murderer, he struggles with his conscience at first. But when he begins to understand Monica's reasons for doing what she does, he finds a way to justify his own actions.
Soon Frank comes to the awful realization that he's actually beginning to enjoy his new lifestyle, and not least because he's falling in love with the woman who's blackmailing him.
