A single-minded cop in search of his partner's killer undertakes a grueling investigation, which leads him into the murky Louisiana criminal underworld and brings him close to a mysterious blonde woman who may hold the answer to the mystery.
To avenge his partner's death, Eddie Jillette ventures deep into Louisiana's Cajun bayou. But he's only got one lead: a mysterious blond bombshell girlfriend who's somehow enslaved to the murderer. After Jillette takes the young woman hostage, he finds himself falling in love with the fragile beauty. But the sexual tension between them won't interfere with his mission to penetrate the Cajun criminal underworld and avenge his friend's murder.
