Graves (Leonard Urso) is an American soldier stationed in the Philippines who meets Lydia (Hilda Koronel) an attractive Filipino woman, and a relationship begins. Unfortunately, Graves accidentally kills a young boy while on guard duty at the American base, and the boy happens to be the little brother of Lydia's former romantic interest, Sidro (Phillip Slavador) - a hit man for the top mobster Gómez. Instead of taking action against Graves for this incident, the military brass hush it up, preferring to frame Graves as a drug dealer as an excuse to "extradite" him to another country. Before they can do so, Graves escapes the base, knowing he will have to outmaneuver the military police and mobsters, Sidro included, who want his head on a platter.
