Marianne “Muffie” Graves, a former hippie, is a successful lawyer completing a business deal in Detroit, Michigan. At a gas station, she crosses paths with a man that looks and sounds exactly like her hippie ex-fiancé, Rick Jarmin, who disappeared in a plane crash 15 years previously and is presumed dead. The man pretends to be a Vietnam War veteran and Marianne apologizes, says that Rick would never have served in that war, and then leaves. The terrified man then makes a call saying that he has been recognized and needs to be moved.

15 years earlier, Rick testified against a murderous drug-smuggling DEA agent named Eugene Sorenson and has been in the witness protection program ever since. Unfortunately, his old handler has retired and his new handler, FBI agent Joe Weyburn, is being blackmailed into colluding with Sorenson. Promising to have Rick moved immediately, Weyburn writes down the gas station’s address and leaks it to Sorenson. Meanwhile, Sorenson has been released on parole; his partner, Albert “Diggs” Diggins, picks him up and they set out to kill Rick for revenge and to smooth the passage of their new dealings with the Colombian drug cartels.
