John Mercer is a former member of the Special Forces serving a double life sentence. He is released from prison unexpectedly early and introduced to the shadowy Lenny Douglas, a police officer retired on grounds of ill health.
Mercer realises his newfound freedom comes at a price. Douglas pulls together an unofficial operation with a single brief -- to remove untouchable criminals from society.
Mercer must use the skills he learned in the Special Forces to execute a series of discreet hits.
To help him complete each mission, Mercer is introduced to his new colleagues who include Calum McKenzie, a petty thief whose main interests are girls, drugs and music.
Things are complicated by the final member of Douglas's group -- the sharp tongued but seductive Rose, an ex-copper forced out of the police by scandal, she has always used her sexuality as her primary weapon and is more than a match for Mercer.
