Life: A Civil War

When two Persian Americans are killed and a third is kidnapped, Detective Charlie Crews and Dani Reese believe they have a hate crime on their hands. They race to meet the kidnappers demands before it’s too late. What unfolds is a complicated scheme involving drugs, money and ultimately a young mans desperate attempt to win his mother’s affection. Meanwhile, Crews' dream about solar panels prompts him to want to buy a solar farm. Crews' roommate and financial advisor, Ted Earley, questions his impulsive nature.
