Golden Globe Award winner Jennifer Garner plays the frustrated and vengeful mother, Riley North, in ‘Peppermint’.

The system failed, but she won't! Riley North (Jennifer Garner) awakens from a coma after her husband and daughter are killed in a brutal attack on the family. When the system frustratingly shields the murderers from justice, Riley sets out to transform herself from citizen to urban guerrilla.

Channelling her frustration into personal motivation, she spends years in hiding honing her mind, body and spirit to become an unstoppable force - eluding the underworld, the LAPD and the FBI as she methodically delivers her personal brand of justice. With nothing to lose, she is determined to take from her enemies the very life they stole from her. The film is directed by Pierre Morel (The Taken series) and stars Golden Globe Award winner Jennifer Garner, John Ortiz, John Gallagher Jr, Juan Pablo Raba, and Tyson Ritter.
