A Texas oil tycoon’s daughter is held hostage in a villa outside Rio de Janeiro, and both the US and Brazilian governments are unable or unwilling to do anything to help.
A black Austin City detective named Williams may have an unorthodox solution. Through his investigation of unrelated crimes in the exclusive West Austin Tarrytown neighborhood he has come to know and respect a young scofflaw named Steven Paul. He believes this young man and his motley crew may be the answer to the prayers of his fellow church-going friend, the girl’s father, and he decides to make the introduction.
Only two thousand miles and a strongman separate Steven Paul and his crew of youngsters from success in their mission.
