After using himself as bait to rid New York City of its muggers in Death Wish (1974), Paul Kersey relocates to Los Angeles with his traumatised daughter, trying to wipe the slate clean, and bury the past. However, once again, Paul catches the eye of a new bunch of savage street thugs, and before long, rape and murder destroy his family. Now, armed with his unforgiving semi-automatic Beretta 84 pistol, Kersey prowls the filthy backstreets of L.A., eager to pick up where he left off, and clean up the city. But, Paul's brutal method of justice is starting to attract unwanted attention. Will the police corner the notorious vigilante this time?
