Maceda is on the run from Orosco, a big-time drug trafficker he had been forced to testify against. FBI agent Gere also hopes to track down Maceda before Orosco's men find him. Deciding to ambush his pursuers, Maceda holes up in a nearly abandoned Central Valley town. The hit men are soon in town with Gere hot on their heels. The ensuing shootout takes place at a meat-packing plant.
