In a violent and corrupt prison, decorated cop Louis Burke must infiltrate the jail to find answers to a number of inside murders. What he finds is a struggle of life and death tied in to his own past.

Over the Radio:
Listen Burke, this is L.A. not Canada. We have procedures here.
At the very beginning of the film Louis Burke enters a building and is slashed across the chest by "The Sandman", Louis Burke drops his gun which lands more than arms reach away, he then tries to reach for it, and cannot reach it. In the exact next shot, he has it in his hand and then holds it in front of him and then shoots "The Sandman".
The film was cut to receive an M rating in Australia for its theatrical release. The cuts were later restored for an uncut R rated video release.
