Firefighter Gordy Brewer's (Arnold Schwarzenegger) family were killed in an explosion. The man responsible is a Columbian known as The Wolf. When the government feels that they have more important things to be concerned about than Brewer, Brewer decides to take things into his own hands. He goes to Columbia to try and find The Wolf but discovers that it's not going to be that easy. And when a woman (Neri) and her child (The Wolf's wife & child) get in his way he has to decide just how much like the Wolf he is willing to be.
