Oak, a gladiatorial fighter cursed with spontaneous human combustion that could trigger at any given moment, must race to uncover the identity of his cloaked attacker.
With the help of forensic specialist Calgary Redglove, they track down one suspect after another, drawing blanks as they go ... and the attention of assassins.
