Just an ordinary day.  Liza is on her way home.  When she gets to the tunnel, there are a few men standing in there.  She has to force her way through them but doesn't think much about it.  On the other side of the tunnel, Liza sees her mother in the yard and she is coming towards her.  What is going on?  Her mother shouts something and tackles Liza.  What the heck?  Why is mom acting so strange?  What was she yelling about?  And why isn't she getting up?  When Liza finally looks at her mother, she realizes that she has been shot.  Only hours after her death, another attempt is made on Liza's life.  Who could want her dead?  She's nobody.  But now she and her father are put into witness protection and made to leave immediately.  They have new names and new lives.  But that doesn't mean Liza is safe.
