Though conflicted, the agent decides he must follow orders and kills the rogue agent. The aftermath of that decision, however, leaves him emotionally conflicted and looking for solace and emotional relief in alcohol.

But what if he hasn’t actually killed his old friend? News reaches him that the man he thought he had killed may, in fact, still be alive. There are reports of a ruthless rebel leader in Guatemala who leaves a bloody trail behind him and operates just like the supposedly dead agent. When they finally reunite, it’s a fight to the death.
