The Outsider

Synopsis: Recalled from the battlefields of Afghanistan to identify the remains of his daughter, British mercenary Lex Walker arrives in Los Angeles to find that the body in the morgue belongs to a stranger. With his daughter now missing, Walker convinces a street-wise detective that his daughter is still alive and in danger. The two follow a trail of high-tech intrigue that leads them to his daughter's former boss, a crooked cyber-millionaire who will do whatever it takes to protect his empire - including taking down anyone who gets in his way. Driven by desperation and rage, Walker must fight his way through an army of thugs and hired killers to save the one person that means more to him than life itself.

Grounded on the base...

No way to raise a kid.

When was the last time

you heard from her?

Months ago.

I mean, after her mom died...

Things kind of drifted.

One month led to another month

and then before you know it,

we lost contact.

I forget...

I forget how hard it was for

her growing up in Los Angeles.

I should have been there for her.

I should have been a

better dad, made the effort.

Surprised you got back so early.

They give you any problems

when you asked for the time off?

Only for the fact because I

told them to go f*ck themselves.

That's classy.

No matter where you seem to go,

there's more than likely a bridge

that's gonna get burned down.

I don't know how you made it in

the military for as long as you did.

Well, they kept me on the

front line for a reason.

But I'm done with it

now, I've had enough.

Twenty five years in service.

Time to try something new.

Any ideas?

No, not yet. But I'm working on it.

Look, Nick, I don't want to put

it on you, but I need your help.

I need you to sort some

stuff out for me. I need to...

I need to get rid of this house.

The only things that are left here now

are just memories I'd rather forget.

In this market, you're not gonna

get what it used to be worth.

That don't matter.

There's enough in this to at

least get me started again.

I'll make some calls when

you head over to the States.

I'm not with you, what do

you mean, back to the States?

When you fly back to the States.

I'm not going anywhere, mate.

You don't know, do you?

Don't know what?

Her body's still in Los Angeles.

Please tell me that you

are fucking kidding me.

They were supposed to

bring her home tomorrow.

After you contacted us, I

thought you would have heard.

No, because they cut all

communication when I left the base.
