Far into the twenty third century a massive asteroid floats deep through space. But this is no ordinary asteroid, it houses the maximum security prison, Alpha IV. The most notorious criminals in the universe are kept in a constant state of cryo-suspension. Among them is Macmasters, the most ruthless criminal of them all. His frozen gaze staring into space, he is a symbol of renegade times. Hurtling its way towards Alpha IV, is a commercial transportation ship piloted by Captain Teegs (Maryam D'Arbo). Her cargo is a group of gangsters, thieves and murderers. When the ship arrives the prisoners are offloaded and the fun begins. A criminal known as Villum slips a virus into the computer systems, releasing all the prisoners. Caught in the middle of the mayhem Captain Teegs and her one decent captive, Riley, have to fight their way out. An unlikely duo, they are the only thing standing between Macmasters and an unsuspecting universe.
