Jonathan Shale is a mercenary who is normally good at his job. But when a Cuban mission goes wrong, Shale is forced to retreat back to his home in Miami. He reunites with his fiancee Jane Hetzko, who is a teacher at Miami's Columbus High School. Jane is injured by a student and she hesitates to tell Shale. But she finally breaks down and tells Shale that she thinks that a pupil named Juan Lacas had a hand in ordering the beating. Shale goes undercover as Hetzko's substitute teacher to find out exactly what happened and to make the offenders pay. During the course of his investigation, Shale uncovers gang activity and a drug smuggling operation that all point to Lacas. Shale decides that Lacas' reign of terror at Columbus High School is about to come to an end.
