Synopsis by Mark Deming
A good private eye goes up against a gang of crooked cops in this action thriller. Alice Jeffries (Anne Jensen) is an American college student who heads down to Mexico for spring break with one of her best friends. However, their vacation turns sour when the young women are arrested on drug charges and taken to jail. David Manning (Christopher Atkins), house detective at the hotel where they were staying, has reason to believe Alice and her friend were set up, and his suspicions are confirmed when he learns that Alice's father is the governor of California. While corrupt police officers have offered to release Alice and keep the matter quiet in exchange for a hefty payment, Manning has another idea -- he assembles a crack team of undercover operatives to break into the jail and free the girls before any harm can come to them at the hands of the dirty cops.
