After his last mission, secret agent Jim Matteos takes a few months off to process issues from his past and think about his future. His leave comes to an abrupt end when Jorge Herreira, a notorious drug criminal, escapes in spectacular fashion from the heavily guarded San Quentin State Penitentiary in San Francisco. Herreira threatens an action in which America must prepare for countless casualties.
With a controversial plan, Jim manages to penetrate Herreira’s organization. He meets the female right-hand man of the drug criminal and tries to find out about Herreira’s nefarious plan through her. To Jim’s dismay, his discoveries bring him closer not only to the drug criminal, but also to a terrible event from his own past.
