Tensions are running high between the U.S. Navy and the local population as the Navy prepares to turn its last naval base over to the local authorities. Among those assigned to the base for turnover are three Navy SEALS. As the turnover date approaches, one of the Seals gets into a fight with a local and kills him. His friends help him cover up the crime, and this works for awhile until a Naval Investigation Officer doggedly pursues the case and begins to close in. When the Navy fails to extricate him, his d mind snaps and he escapes, becoming an armed fugitive intent on mayhem. An explosive chase ensues which tests the limits of friendship and patriotism.
