Going undercover in rural Kentucky, an environmental agent tries to prove the dumping of toxic waste in the local coal mines by ruthless industrialists.
Just as production started on location in Kentucky, it emerged that a real EPA investigation was taking place nearby. Steven Seagal invited the EPA official to visit the set so he could chat with him about environmental issues and what he did.
I'm going to Kentucky to check on a case. When I'm back, we're gonna go hunting. Do some fishing. We'll get away from all this stuff.
Jack Taggert: I appreciate the friendship. Means a lot to me.
Many scenes in the movie take place in a bar in Jackson. Jackson is located in Breathitt County, which is "dry", meaning the sale of alcoholic beverages is illegal.
