After serving time in the military and a stint in the CIA, Nico Toscani (Steven Seagal) is now a detective with the Chicago police. It is a strange marriage, one where his wife's family is none other than mob related, and his primary objective is to keep the neighborhood clean. His partner Delores 'Jacks' Jackson (Pam Grier) has given her notice and plans to work with the district attorney's office. At his daughter's christening, Nico is asked to find his cousin who ran away from home. While he is there, Nico is fed a tip by a kid trying to stay out of jail, about a shipment that is getting ready to go down.

Nico and Jacks are part of the team that followed up on the tip, but they soon realize that the Chicago police department was not the only authority there. After arresting Tony Salvano (Daniel Faraldo), the FBI moved in and took over the case based on the fact that it was C 4 on not drugs.

The feds did not stop there, they released Salvano because he is supposed to be working with the CIA. At a department meeting, the FBI informs the CPD that they are to leave Salvano alone, and any concerns about his activities must go through the bureau first.

Nico is not prepared to let it go at that, he continues to tail Salvano to see what turns up, and he eventually rubs a few people the wrong way. In addition to a bomb going off while he is in church, taking the lives of 7 people (the priest included), Nico is also served a warrant to search his house, he is then taken to the station where he is suspended.

Andrew Davis directs and co writes this action drama with Seagal, with supporting roles by Sharon Stone as Sara Toscani, Chelcie Ross as Nelson Fox and Henry Silva as Kurt Zagon
