A case-hardened cop determined to catch the murderer who killed his partner and a by-the-book rookie pampered by his rich father are hot on the trail of a ruthless auto theft ring. The leader of the ring just happens to be the murderer.
Nick Pulovski is a tough, veteran cop with a history of training new partners who end up dead -- usually, thanks to his recklessness. His most recent assignment is a cocky rookie with emotional problems, and a lot of leftover hostility from his childhood. The two team up to crack a car-stealing ring; but when Pulovski gets kidnapped by a pair of sadistic thieves, it's up to the brash rookie to save him. And this young cop won't let useless technicalities like "The Law" stand in his way.
