Set in Los Angeles (but filmed in Baja California) this straight-to-video crime thriller centers on hard-boiled maverick cop Richard Montana and his pursuit of the city's most powerful drug lord Mario Gio. Gio decides he's had enough of the troublesome Montana after the cop arrests his right-hand man Hip Hop and successfully launches a huge lawsuit against the L.A.P.D. Naturally this doesn't set well with Chief Deming who punishes Montana by denying him a much-desired promotion and giving it to Montana's rival Henderson, the cop Montana blames for his partner's death. Things get more sticky when Montana falls in love with Gio's sexy moll, a lounge singer who is angry with Gio for reneging on his promise to make her a star.
