Summary, etc.: Alec Baldwin stars as ex-detective Dave Robicheaux, who sees a drug-smuggling plane go down in the Gulf of Mexico and rescues a little girl from the wreckage. He and his wife (Kelly Lynch) take the orphaned Salvadoran girl into their home and prepare to raise her; however, a visit from a DEA agent brings out Dave's detective instincts. He begins to suspect that the crash was no accident. The DEA, the local mob, and Dave's old criminal pal Bubba Rocque (Eric Roberts) all converge on the small Louisiana town with dire warnings of bloodshed or worse. Dave's world begins to collapse when his investigation results in the murder of his wife. Enraged and undaunted, Dave becomes determined to bring everyone involved in the crime to justice.
