Singer and former Miss America Vanessa L. Williams makes her screen debut in this crime-action film. Mike Braxton (Sam Jones) is a policeman in St. Louis, Missouri. He responds to an urgent summons from his brother Tony (Nick Cassavetes), a cop in Los Angeles. Mike gets to L.A. and finds that his brother's been murdered. He learns that Tony was investigating the arms-smuggling operation of Simon Stone (John Russell). Mike forms an alliance with Stone's lawyer (Williams), who's learned such disturbing things about him that she's willing to violate client-lawyer confidentiality. The pair work together to bring the arms dealer to justice.
