What if you found out your deadbeat father is a superhero? Would you leave your small-town life to take up the mantle of a father you never knew? For 18-year-old Lucas, the choice is an easy one: he's not going to leave behind his mother and his comfortable, if dead-end, life as a high school dropout and auto mechanic for a father who's never been around.
But his father—known officially as billionaire Clayton Hartwell, and secretly as the vigilante superhero the Raptor—tells Lucas that as he is dying, evil is growing, and the world needs Lucas to become the new Raptor. As Lucas spends time with his father observing his "heroic" behavior up close, he is left wondering about the line between good and evil, and if good is only a matter of perspective.
