Plot Summary
Emerging from prison after four years, Neil Skinner (Pierce Brosnan) has only one aim: revenge against the man who framed him, his former business partner Ebbet Berens (Tom Skerritt). The two handled security for a San Diego racetrack, but Ebbet has since usurped both that and Sheila (Wendy Hughes), Neil's former love. The embittered Neil assembles a group of track insiders to pull off a robbery that will vindicate him and send his rival to jail. And, if he's lucky, he'll win the girl back too.
