Captain Zack Adams is the only American who can identify an elusive terrorist, codenamed Chameleon. Disfigured and emasculated during his Delta Force unit's failed attempt to neutralize the menacing terrorist, Adams is airlifted to an American military hospital but his stay there is short-lived. When Adams is reported missing from the hospital, Pentagon officials surmise he has been abducted by terrorists who want to protect Chameleon's hidden identity. Adams's wife, Molly, becomes severely depressed when she learns her husband has been reported missing in action, and their teenage son, Pete, undergoes an abrupt personality change and becomes incorrigible. Working from a secret military base in the Middle East, an unconventional C.I.A. counterterrorism specialist, Jack "Tarzan" Trzansky, takes matters into his own hands and masterminds a plan to neutralize Chameleon, locate the missing captain and restore domestic tranquility to the home of Molly and Pete Adams. Tarzan prefers working alone but he realizes his latest plan will require the assistance of a skilled operator. Her name is Mia.
