Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
Following the death of an American war correspondent (John Rice) in Nicaragua, his best friend, a New York stock broker (Louis Gossett, Jr.) is sent down by the State Department to claim the body. Upon his arrival to the nation's capitol, Managua, he discovers that the body has supposedly already been interred. His suspicions aroused, the stockbroker (who is really an undercover commando) surreptitiously investigates. He soon discovers that his friend (a fellow commando sent down to infiltrate a drug cartel) may be very much alive, but also may be a turncoat. Thus begins a quest that becomes as tangled as rainforest vines.
