A cop receives lots of media attention when he nabs an infamous, sadistic killer at an amusement park. The murderer stews in jail for seven years, obsessively following the rising career of his arresting officer, who becomes a DA with a promising future, a husband, and a dad. This doesn't sit well with the vengeful convict, who after escaping from prison, puts into play a series of fiendish plots in an attempt to destroy the attorney's marriage and career. And only by engaging in a violent rematch with his diabolical nemesis will the desecrated DA be able to clear his name and save his marriage.
