Storyline

Jesse Bookman, a troubled New Orleans burglary detective gains local fame when he foils a convenient store robbery. When Captain Jones gives Jesse time off due to his heroism, Jesse becomes the target of Lamar Davis, a Bocor (an evil Voodoo Priest), who has been charging the ultra elite of New Orleans to participate in elaborate Voodoo ceremonies. Lamar plans to use Jesse, a true hero, as his first human sacrifice for his demented ceremonies and as payoff in exchange for his own "deal with the devil" for his soul. When Jesse's partner Mac McDaniels puts clues together he employs Jesse's father to stage a daring rescue, not knowing the supernatural forces they must face to save Jesse Bookman.
