This action-packed but familiar film teaches that crime doesn't pay, especially if you’re new at it.

Jay Gelb (Charlie Schlatter), his wife Arlene (Deborah Zoe), Tug McCann (Taylor Sheridan) and his girlfriend Eva (Tricia Helfer) are relaxing around a campfire with their cop buddy Chick (Louis Mandylor). But when they stumble upon a drug deal turned massacre in the forest, Chick browbeats his friends into snatching the coke and cash from the corpses. Eva freaks out, flees and runs smack-dab into Brian Nathanson (Judd Nelson), the only survivor of the deadly cocaine exchange. While Brian forces Eva to drive him to a criminals' refuge run by Donny (James Pickens Jr.), Chick lays out his big score: Not only does he intend to sell the goods to a big-time dealer named Santos Chabron (Eddie Velez), he also plans to execute the drug lord and be declared a hero. Meanwhile in Ensenada Mexico, the cartel leader Londono Garcia (Ivo Cutzarida) dispatches an assassin named Solange (Sandra Vidal) to retrieve his "White Rush." As Solange gathers information, she eliminates her sources including Donny and Tug, and Jay and Arlene begin to wonder if breaking the law was such a good idea. Can Chick pull off his double cross with Brian and Solange breathing down his neck?

Every drug flick cliche is on display here: The bent but charismatic cop, the villains with Desi-Arnaz accents, the undercover DEA agent with wavering loyalties. But the high energy shootouts enliven the stock situations.
