Seattle, Washington, a city in the midst of a crisis. While the innocent sleep, lives are being lost on the streets. The Yakuza have raged war on one of the most feared gangs of Mexican drug lords in the world and Seattle has been caught in the crossfire. Meanwhile a local bank has been taken siege by Leroy Jacobs, an armed and dangerous man who's slowly slipping over the edge. The city's only hope for justice is Sheriff Elijah Kane (Steven Seagal) and his elite force of undercover cops, a new breed of extreme law enforcement.
