set in new york city, "day eight" unfolds amidst the shadows of the statue of liberty and the united nations.
call him what you like, because for chance, it's about one thing only: saving his clients' lives. when there is an unusual or imminent threat that can't be solved through "normal" means of protection, chance is hired to completely integrate himself into his clients' lives - to become the human target. if you're a corporate manager whose disgruntled employee has gone violently off the deep end, chance is your new auditor. if you're the president of a bank who's been tipped off to a potential heist, chance is your unassuming bank teller..
during each job, chance, assisted by his business partner winston (chi mcbride) and hired gun guerrero (jackie earle haley), puts himself directly in the line of fire as he races against time to save his client. chance's dark history will unravel with every new danger. does anyone know who christopher chance really is? what secrets lay buried in his past? what would make a man willingly become a human target?
