Action drama about the drugs trade. An Ohio State judge, Robert Wakefield, is about to be appointed the nation's new 'drugs czar' - unaware that his teenage daughter is in the process of moving from soft to harder drugs. A couple of Mexico-based cops successfully intercept a drugs shipment but are themselves captured by a corrupt army general who steals the drugs for himself. A pair of DEA agents are out to capture a middling drugs-cartel figure named Ray Castro in the hope that he will lead them to his boss whose pregnant wife doesn't know how her husband earns his money.
