Former Green Beret Martin Fierro (Erik Estrada) is hired to kill the president of a mythical South American country in this thrilling political feature. The president was responsible for the death of Martin's father, the publisher of a left-wing newspaper. Sam Merrick (Robert Vaughn) is the CIA agent out to stop the killing to avoid further political chaos. Requisite car chases and gunplay are included, and the production quality along with Vaughn's performance help to overcome a thin storyline.
