Vietnam vet Williamson returns home from the Army after being dishonorably discharged for striking an officer. Unable to find work, he hangs around a restaurant owned by a Mafia family, headed by Adler. He turns down a job as a hit man, but continues to hang around the restaurant because of
his attraction to Sherman, an employee of the family. She is having an affair with McDowall and with him conspires to provoke a gang war. Soon, Williamson is sucked into their plan. After making his directorial debut with the comedy ADIOS AMIGO, Williamson moved into the action genre where he
seemed more comfortable, but still created a rather obvious film.
