Unfortunately, Tom doesn’t seem mature (or outspoken) to his disapproving father, who doesn’t believe Tom is ready to take over Swift Enterprises. A potential father-son reconciliation becomes even more unlikely when Tom — in a room surrounded by his father’s closest “friends” and colleagues — witnesses his spacecraft explode during a live broadcast of a high-profile Saturn voyage.

Tom is full of grief and guilt, but after discovering the source of the explosion external On the ship, he goes into full-scale heist mode, recruiting his inner circle — cousins ​​Zenzi (Ashleigh Murray) and Lino (Donovin Miller), and bodyguard Isaac (Marquise Vilson) — to help him retrieve vital information to uncover who actually killed his father.
