So that's what Vinnie Chase has been up to since the end of Entourage! Jokes aside, Adrien Grenier stars as Nick Brewer, a man who many would look at and see the perfect husband and father. However, that image is turned upside down when he's abducted and placed in front of a live-feed on the internet with a sign that reads "I abuse woman" and "at 5 million views I die". Now the race is on to not only find Nick, but to also find out whether the abductor's allegations are true.
