Trailer trailer



Rick Jarmin works in a gas station in Detroit, Michigan. It's all part of his cover in the witness protection program. He's in the program because of his testimony against corrupt FBI agent, Eugene Sorenson. 15 years have passed and Jarmin meets up with Marianne Graves, his former fiancée. Speaking to her is too great a risk; however, Sorenson tracks Jarmin to the gas station, shoots the station's owner and makes it look like Jarmin and Graves did it. The former couple goes on the run to escape Sorenson, Albert Diggs and crooked cop Joe Weyburn, all of whom want Jarmin dead. Jarmin's past jobs while in the program help them escape many close calls. The showdown happens in the zoo where Jarmin once worked, where he finally triumphs by setting some of the big cats and crocodiles free.
