The trailer gave a sneak peek into the story of a young adopted teenager Eli (played by Myles Truitt) who discovers a mysterious, otherworldly weapon with unknown powers. When he tries to use it to save his older brother (Jack Reynor) against a vengeful crime lord (Franco), they are forced to be on the run and find an ally in a stranger (Kravitz). While fleeing from enemies, the only thing they have left to protect themselves with is the weapon.
