Despite being commonly known as Jack Keeper, this name does not suit him in his current situation. It has been 12 months since his wife died in a fatal road accident. This has not only affected his personal life but also seems to be affecting his job as well. The ‘Keeper’ serves as a prison warden in Green Haven Maximum Security Prison, which houses more than 2500 New York notorious and most dangerous criminals. Therefore he cannot lose his focus on the job not even for a second. Unfortunately, he has been tormented by many demons in his life, not to mention the frequent flashback he is getting regarding the Attica uprising and grief for his wife.

Eduardo Vasquez, a cop killer and one of the prisoners sees the emotional instability of Marconi and ceases this opportunity to make his move. The emotionally unstable prison warden grants the convict to have a dental appointment outside the confinement facility; this later proves to be one major mistake that Jack Marconi makes.

What was to be a dental appointment turns out to be a prison break episode, and Vasquez is nowhere to be seen? This leaves Jack not only accused of sleeping on the job but also used as a scapegoat for the whole ordeal.

In pursuit of Vasquez, the cop killer convict, Jack will soon discover a much bigger conspiracy in progress that he never saw coming. He becomes the target of a set-up as his office is soon bombarded with drugs, while “uncensored” photographs are circulating and to add on this he is charged with obstruction of justice.

In a desperate move, Marconi designs a scheme which includes kidnapping the escaped convict girlfriend while in the hunt for Vasquez.
