An incredible movie in which two friends lives go in different directions. Nick Frescia (Russell) becomes a police officer while Dale McKussic (Gibson) becomes a drug dealer. Rumour has it that Frescia won’t bust Mckussic because of their long standing freindship but with the information that Carlos is coming to town, the freindship is put to the test. The FBI is following McKussic every move and they cannot catch him with any drugs. Jo Ann Valenari (Pfieffer) is the love interest of McKussic but Frescia will use any means necessary to get Carlos including Jo Ann Valenari.Great performances all around with Raul Julia leading the pack.
