Colin (Idris Elba) killed a man in a bar fight and was convicted of manslaughter.  After serving five years, he’s up for parole; however, he’s also a suspect in the murder of five young women.  Prosecutors didn’t have enough evidence to try Colin for the five murders so they took the one conviction they knew they could win to get him off the streets.  One of the parole board members, Dr. Ross (Wilbur Fitzgerald), knows Colin is a suspect and states he believes Colin is a narcissist who becomes violent when he doesn’t get his way with women.
