When their brother Gerald (Bill Paxton) is murdered by a Chicago mobster (Adam Baldwin), Truman (Patrick Swayze) and Briar Gates (Liam Neeson) differ on how to respond. Briar, who believes in an-eye-for-an-eye justice, wants to retaliate, but Chicago policeman Truman thinks it's a matter for the authorities.
