The film also features Bernie Kuby as John Dullaghan, the criminal that Jesse is after, and Heidi Dobbs as Theresa, a young woman who gets caught up in the crossfire.

The story takes place in Los Angeles, where Jesse Crowder is a tough cop who is assigned to escort John Dullaghan, a dangerous criminal, to testify before a grand jury. John Dullaghan is a vicious killer who is responsible for the murders of several police officers and is set to testify against his accomplice, a powerful mob boss. The mob boss, however, is determined to prevent him from testifying and hires a team of hitmen to kill him before he gets the chance.

Jesse Crowder quickly realizes that the job is not going to be easy as he and John Dullaghan are constantly under attack from the hired hitmen. Along the way, they meet Theresa, a young woman who is also caught up in the crossfire.
