Before this, Dukhovich hired Darius Kincaid, a hitman who had troubled past as an employer, to kill his political rival who is human rights activist but when Kincaid learns that Dukhovich's rival had children, it reminded him of losing his own father whom that he was close to as a child.
Kincaid abandons his assignment and Dukhovich orders his secret police to massacre the village which horrifies Kincaid, as he sees innocent people being brutally murdered. He secretly takes photographs to provide the evidence of Dukhovich's crimes against humanity leading to get arrested by the authorities.
