Steven Seagal stars in the bare-knuckled action film that made him a star. Trained in Aikido, Nico Toscani (Seagal) worked as a CIA operative and saw horrors that he can never forget. Now a Chicago policeman, Nico believes he has escaped his past. But he uncovers a black-market, drugs-for-weapons trade run by a sadistic CIA operative he remembers from Vietnam. He is ordered not to investigate, but he knows the evil that is being unleashed in his hometown--and that it is time to place himself Above The Law.
