Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
A veteran Florida cop and a cocky transplant from the Pacific Northwest attempt to put aside their differences in order to catch a dangerous killer in this taut thriller starring Tom Arnold and Judd Nelson. Summoned from his sickly wife Sirena's bedside to a fatal freeway accident in the dead of night, seasoned detective Emory Lane (Nelson) finds a picture of a missing girl who has been tortured and bound to a tree in the middle of a central Florida swamp. With the only witness dead and precious few clues as to the girl's whereabouts, Detective Lane teams with swaggering Detective Zeth Arnold (Devon Sawa) to locate the girl before she dies. Just as the detectives start to believe they're on the right track, however, they find out that someone else is searching for the girl as well - and his motive is deeply sinister. But the closer Detective Lane gets to catching the killer, the further his wife slips away. Later, when a key piece of evidence leads the detectives straight to the girl's location, they make a terrifying discovery.
