A disgraced DEA agent squares off against a drug cartel in an effort to clear his brother of murder charges.
Johnny wakes from a drunken stupor in an upper-class neighborhood in Tijuana, his European journalist wife, Sarah, mysteriously missing. Pegged for the crime by the local police, Johnny takes a chance and calls his brother Cole (Gary Daniels) in Juarez, Mexico, for help.
Cole is not only a tough DEA agent, he is Sarah’s ex-husband. He’s also fresh out of a bloody, botched operation which got him suspended from active duty.
Still haunted by his failed marriage to Sarah, and always distrustful of his brother Johnny, Cole defies his superiors and makes his way to the scene of the kidnapping. Approached by Gracie, a female photojournalist and colleague of Sarah’s, Cole gets his first lead on Sarah’s whereabouts.
He finds that Sarah’s had been investigating Raul Montenegro, a charismatic, popular Mexican businessman with aspirations for public office. Sarah has uncovered proof that Montenegro, in reality, has made has his fortunes as the middle-man between the South American drug producers and the Mexico's deadly border cartels.
The hardened DEA man now-gone-rogue barrels into the seedy underworld of the city. Hiring two private military to “contractors” to help him rescue Sarah, and against Gracie’s better advice to use more finesse, the men stumble into a violent gunfight barely escaping with their lives.
Johnny is found dead in his jail cell after the botched raid and soon informants turn-up dead as well. Cole turns from hunted to hunter as he moves closer to Sarah. But time is running out.
In a desperate and brazen move, and defying the orders of his handlers, Cole takes on Montenegro’s lead enforcer to get Sarah back. But will his gamble pay off?
