While in a convenience store, professional bodyguard Luke Campbell (Louis Mandylor) turns his back on the lovely woman he's protecting, Lisa Ozaki, only to have her kidnapped in the blink of an eye. A ransom of two million dollars is asked for her return. There is one problem: Lisa wasn't Lisa (Rei Kikukawa), she was Maria (Maya Hoshino), a look-alike hired by Mr. Ozaki (Kowi Nakata), her wealthy father, who had anticipated Lisa's kidnapping. There's just one more problem: Luke fell in love with Maria while he was protecting her, and he doesn't care for the whiny Lisa at all. In order to get Maria back, Luke kidnaps Lisa to exchange for Maria with the original kidnappers. Sounds simple, yes? Well, actually there's just one problem: The kidnappers and the cops, who suspect Luke in the murder of a sleazy nightclub owner (Udo Kier), are coming for Luke, and it's not going to be pretty when they catch him.
