Overview

A major drug lord in Colombia has changed his personal and physical identity so he cannot be located. But he has one characteristic that could give him away - his passion for breeding and showing a special breed of horses - Paso Finos. A former U.S. Army Ranger and a young Cuban American DEA agent are sent to Colombia by DEA to find him. Ostensibly, they are Tim and Maria Martin, wealthy U.S. Paso Fino breeders. They begin their trip with a cool relationship that changes as they encounter renegade kidnappers and are exposed and held by the drug lord and his men. The capture of the drug lord begins a relentless pursuit by his lieutenant to assassinate those who could testify against him, including the Martins. The story begins and ends in Rio de Janeiro where the grief stricken former U.S. Ranger confronts a violent drug dealer from one of the biggest favelas (slums) in Rio.
