When a fallen cop turns to a life of crime to support both himself and his young son, the choices he makes may lead to deadly consequences in this explosive action effort starring screen veterans Don "The Dragon" Wilson, Chris Penn, Cynthia Rothrock, and James Russo. John Sato (Wilson) has a reputation for being the toughest cop in L.A. The leader of an elite SWAT tactical force, Sato's effective but unorthodox tactics have found him isolated from his team and derided by his superiors. When fellow officer Erin Murphy (Rothrock) is killed in the line of duty, Captain Grill (Russo) pins the death on Sato and he is swiftly terminated by Internal Affairs. Left jobless and penniless and saddled with a son from his broken marriage, Sato turns to high-class call girl Tara (Carrie Stevens) in hopes of finding work on the street. Soon making the acquaintance of malevolent mob boss Tony Leggio (Penn), Sato is forced to choose between a bloody life of greed or the redemption that could earn the respect of his son and put him back on the track to righteousness.
