Crime thriller written and directed by Eric Red. Cohen (Roy Scheider) and Tate (Adam Baldwin) are Mafia hitmen who work together despite hating each other's guts. Cold-blooded pro Cohen resents the younger, hot-headed Tate, who enjoys killing for the sake of it. When they kidnap a nine-year-old witness to a Mafia killing, Travis Knight (Harley Cross), they have to deliver him to Washington in 24 hours. Knight, becoming aware of the animosity between his kidnappers, attempts to play them off against each other in the hope of seizing a chance of escape. However, when the friction explodes into open violence, Travis could be caught in the crossfire.
