DMX and Kris Kristofferson star as two men who share a similar goal despite operating on opposite sides of the law in this action thriller set in post-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans and centering on the search for a dangerous Mexican drug lord. New Orleans is in the cold grip of chaos, providing the perfect cover for Mexican drug lord Santiago Rodriguez to stage a daring escape from a local jail. Aiding Rodriguez in his escape is his powerful uncle, the notorious head of the Catalina Cartel. But in return for getting him out of jail, Rodriguez must pay his uncle the $15 million that his girlfriend stashed away after he was arrested. But getting his cash back will be no simple task for the crafty escaped convict, because standing in the way is a veteran cop (Kristofferson) determined to put Rodriguez back behind bars, and a notorious hit-man (DMX) seeking to settle the score for the death of his niece. With death closing in from one side and justice fast gaining ground on the other, the only hope for this dangerous drug lord is to escape in a hail or gunfire, or die trying.
