Richard Lyon is a former Navy Seal whose last mission ends in the senseless deaths of his team members. To avenge his fallen comrades, he takes on the persona of Robin Hood and uses his skills to steal from those who are exploiting their positions of power and influence.
Tom Redding is a Federal Prosecutor who is currently handling the investigations of two companies that are secretly tied to the Board, a sinister group of men controlled by David Stroker. One night the Board attempts to murder Tom using an automobile accident. Lyon stumbles on the accident scene and stops to help. As a result of his intervention, his life becomes entangled with theirs, and their daughter Laura.
Laura Redding is a columnist for a local Atlanta newspaper. She hates vigilantes, especially Robin Hood. Laura is invited to host a dinner party with her parents to say thank you to Lyon for his selfless act. That night the Board’s operatives try for a second time to kill the Reddings. After making certain that Laura is safe, Lyon dons his cover as Robin Hood and with the aide of a former marine, Paul Shea, the Redding’s butler and bodyguard, the attempt is thwarted.
Later that same night, Lyon’s ex-wife is murdered in his subdivision. She was attempting to reach Lyon after discovering devastating secrets regarding her second husband, David Stroker. She knew of no one else she could trust.
With two aborted murder attempts on Tom Redding, the cohesiveness of the Board is beginning to splinter. Stroker’s leadership is being questioned. Stroker soon discovers Robin Hood has learned the secrets his ex-wife discovered. This fuels Stroker’s determination to discover the identity of Robin Hood. When his investigators reveal to him they are convinced Lyon is Robin Hood, he finds the news laughable. After ordering the abduction of Tom Redding’s daughter in an effort to stop the federal investigation into the Board’s activities, he orders Lyon’s death.
The relationship between Laura and Lyon is flourishing. Unaware Laura is the newspaper columnist calling for Robin Hood to be hung; he believes they will one day marry.
Illegally accessing Pacific Petroleum’s mainframe computer for a second time, Lyon uncovers the planned abduction of a woman in order to stop a federal investigation, and the intent to search his home to ascertain if he is Robin Hood.
Lyon rushes home to confront the Board’s operatives that have broken into his home. Dressed as Robin Hood, he stalks the operatives and overhears them discussing the plan to kidnap the Federal Prosecutor’s daughter. Realizing his failure to connect Stroker’s emails detailing the abduction together with Tom’s federal investigations, Lyon hurriedly eliminates the intruders. Leaving his house, he races to Laura’s and discovers he was too late to save her.
Paul’s contacts at the NSA break the encryption code on Stroker’s emails. Lyon now knows the location where the kidnappers have hidden Laura. When Paul unexpectedly shows up to assist Lyon, they overcome the kidnappers and rescue Laura.
She doesn’t know whether to be ecstatic or furious. The man she loathes, the man she condemns, has just saved her life...while risking his.
Lyon takes Laura to his home and reveals that he is Robin Hood. Laura’s love for Richard overwhelms her hatred for his alter-ego. That night they begin to contemplate a future together...
...But Robin has unfinished business. Early Saturday morning Robin calls his former high school fencing opponent and informs him he is coming to Seattle to kill him.
Stroker is exhilarated. He has long relished the idea of killing Robin Hood himself. In the gym adjacent to his office, David smugly awaits the confrontation with the man he is certain he is destined to kill.
