Greg Powell is a disturbed ex-con who recruits Jimmy Smith (aka Jimmy Youngblood), a petty thief, as his partner in crime. Powell panics one night when the two of them are pulled over by a pair of cops for broken brake-lights. Powell decides to kidnap the cops and Smith, as always, reluctantly goes along with Powell's crazy scheme. The group drives out to a deserted onion field in Bakersfield, California and one officer is shot while the other escapes. The remainder of the film explores the nature of the American justice system, as well as the devastating psychological effects of this event and the trial on the surviving officer. Written by

James Woods(Gregory Powell),"This Girl's Life'03", played a very hateful person, who was cold blooded and heartless, and claimed to be a family man. John Savage(Karl Hettinger),"The Drop",'93 played the role as a detective who seemed to lose his gun to Gregory and was subject to all kinds of problems at home and on the job. Franklyn Seales(Jimmy Smith),"Southern Comfort",'81 was a convict who just got out of the slammer and got involved with Gregory and also makes love to Gregory's pregnant wife and starts out on the wrong foot. Jimmy Smith tells the police: " I don't know what a conscience is nor the feeling of Wrong or Right". Franklyn Seales was a great supporting actor to James Woods, it is sad that Franklyn had to die at a very young age. If you love James Woods, don't miss this film!
