Kidnapped and taken hostage by vicious Colombian terrorists, Harry Burck (Mark Harmon) is slated to die. When the American government's efforts to free him gets bogged down in red tape, it's up to Harry's kid brother, Corey (Michael Schoeffling), to save him. With local rightwing car dealer Jack Abernathy paying the bill (Gary Busey), Corey hires a gung-ho mercenary, Norman Shrike (Robert Duvall), to lead a rescue team deep into the Colombian jungle. Aided by Veronica (Elpidia Carrillo), a beautiful ex-guerilla, and a tribe of friendly natives, Corey and his friends storm the compound where Harry's held, and free him.
