On May 29, 1998, Detective Sergeant Matt Nelson is beginning his last day with the Sheriffs Office. As he leaves that morning, his wife is suddenly jolted by a frightening sense of danger but doesn't tell him. When an "officer down" call comes in that morning, Matt rushes to the scene, unaware his life is about to change forever. He suddenly finds himself embroiled in a deadly situation as he confronts three heavily-armed militants. Alone and outgunned, Matt is critically wounded and left for dead. In those few minutes, his life is turned around. While in the hospital struggling to survive his wounds, he also finds himself the target of ugly rumors that attempt to destroy his professional reputation. Meanwhile, the fleeing militants have eluded five-hundred cops and disappeared into the wild canyonlands, bringing about the largest manhunt the Four Corners area has ever experienced. At the same time, Matt is engaged in a battle to save his arm and leg; one he may not win. This is the true story of one honest cop overcoming impossible odds and going on to higher goals. Public interest remains high to this day because one of the fugitives is still free. Matt maintains a survivor's mindset while out patrolling the mountain highways, and he will continue watching his back until the third fugitive is brought to justice, one way or another.
