The movie stars Kenny Rogers as the titular character alongside Terry O'Quinn and Wendy Phillips. The movie starts with MacShayne trying to run an honest business as a private investigator. Despite his efforts, MacShayne's past soon catches up with him as a former accomplice named Jenna (played by Phillips) comes back into his life. Jenna is being pursued by a dangerous mobster named Victor Winslow (played by O'Quinn) who is after a valuable stolen item that she possesses.

When Jenna turns to MacShayne for help, he initially refuses. However, he soon realizes that he may not have much of a choice when Winslow and his goons start targeting not just Jenna, but also those close to MacShayne. As a result, MacShayne reluctantly agrees to help Jenna and embarks on an action-packed journey to retrieve the stolen item and stay one step ahead of Winslow.
