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 2,000 miles and a strongman separate Steven Paul and his crew of youngsters from success in their mission.
