Plot Summary
Police officer Cliff Garret (Chuck Norris), wounded in the line of duty, is on the edge of death. The Drug Enforcement Administration decides to use his perilous condition to their advantage -- publicizing Garret's death and, when he recovers, using the officer for an all-important undercover mission.
