Reprisal is a hyper-noir revenge tale that follows Doris Quinn who, after being left for dead by her brother, leaves her comfortable life behind to seek revenge and retribution for the wrongs levied against her.
Armed with the rancor that can only come from bad blood, this newly minted femme fatale mounts a relentless campaign for vengeance against her former family, a bombastic gang of gear heads.
Years after being left for dead, Katherine Harlow (Abigail Spencer) reemerges as Doris Quinn and begins to plot her revenge.
Joel Kelly (Rodrigo Santoro) finds that leading in the absence of The Banished Brawlers’ founder comes with its conflicts.
