FBI agent Nick Travis has been butting heads with superior officer Taggart ever since Taggart interfered in a standoff with gunmen, precipating an unnecessary massacre. When mutilated corpses of tourists start turning up in the Pacific Northwest, Taggart is forced to pair up Travis with up-and-coming profiler Kelly McCord. Travis and McCord discover that the murdered tourists were merely a warm-up for a revenge war planned by discharge soldiers whose V.A. psychiatric rehabilitation program has been cancelled.
