Plot: The leader of a drug cartel busts out of a courthouse and speeds to the Mexican border, where the only thing in his path is a sheriff and his inexperienced staff. Full summary »  »

Story: Sheriff Owens is a man who has resigned himself to a life of fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction after leaving his LAPD post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with failure and defeat after his partner was crippled. After a spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy, the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the hemisphere is hurtling toward the border at 200 mph in a specially outfitted car with a hostage and a fierce army of gang members. He is headed, it turns out, straight for Summerton Junction, where the whole of U.S. law enforcement will have their last opportunity to make a stand and intercept him before he slips across the border forever. At first reluctant to become involved, and then counted out because of the perceived ineptitude of his small town force, Owens ultimately accepts responsibility for the face off.Written by Production  


Synopsis: While surfing the net to uncover information on a suspicious drug dealing former NFL San-Francisco 49er, the Sheriff unexpectably opened a page, uncovering pictures of young Simolian children. Curiosity gets the best of him and he clicks onto a link about the charity for the somolian children.

Suddenly a manifesto of some type appears with the title "THE BLACK EAGLE HAS LANDED".

The manifesto listed underlined names on the leftside of the page and they appeared to be from a foreign country. This sparks the Sheriff’s attention and he clicks on the first name.

It opens and all he sees is a paragragh of words in no particular order. Suddenly he discovers what appears to be a coded paragraph. After looking at each word individually he notices a pattern. He then discovers that the words MURDER, a name of an individual, date, place, and time are hidden in the sentances. He puts it together and realizes it is a ordered hit.

The Sheriff continues down the list of names and uncovers several official personnel are to be executed so he immediately saves the manifesto to the desktop of the computer.

The Sheriff decides he must relay this information to officials, but who? Who can he trust? His past hasn’t been exactly what you call ordinary. He had lost all ties with the people he had once trusted due to a mental breakdown following a severe head injury he sustained from a deceptive, dangerous criminal who was still at large.

The Sheriff decides to take the laptop with him to Spokane, where he will visit a friend and decide how to handle this new information he just intercepted accidentally.

That night he decides to go to the local train station and take the train to Spokane, but as he leaves his driveway he notices a vehicle pull in behind him a little to close for comfort and very suspicious, speeding up and backing off over and over.

The Sheriff begins to pick up speed and the car just follows relentlessly, not giving the Sheriff an inch to spare. Finally the Sheriff decides to take a random exit just to confirm this car is really following him and he’s not just paranoid, but he was absolutely being followed.

The Sheriff tries desperately to lose his tail, but without a doubt this crazed madman or madwoman is going to get him and he’s convinced it has to be related to the undercover drug intel he had just gathered. The Sheriff had just compiled a list of about 12 dangerous drug dealers in the local area and his cover had been blown by a friend (or so he thought he was a friend).

The Sheriff continues at a high rate of speed down highway 101 heading towards Aberdeen when he decides there is no choice, but to get off the highway and find help.

Upon ending up in Aberdeen he loses the madman in a housing development, but not for long. He sees he’s being followed again so he turns off his headlights and hits the gas and gets around a corner just in time to lose the tail long enough to stop the car, jump out and grab up his gun, laptop, survival gear and run like hell into the blackness which would feel like the night no one should ever have to endure in a lifetime.

The terror became pure survival and almost exciting for the Sheriff. His nightvision became very focused and he ran toward some empty buildings on metal foundations in an industrial area along the water.

Where to hide and get a good site on this crazed person? Finally the Sheriff found a building he could climb under and climb up in the metal foundation and hide away in the shadows and wait for the crazy man to come for him.

He had to remain so quit and still as he heard a female scream "That fucking Bitch" and pounded on what sounded like a hood of a car. A small dog barked and a male spoke to her, but the Sheriff couldn’t recognize the voices. So he remained still as the couple walked around and around his hiding spot.

Thank god the dog was kept in the car. The crazy killers looked for hours and hours for the Sheriff by driving around and around and walking back and forth right in front of him, but they just couldn’t find him no matter how hard they tried. The Sheriffs heart beated so loudly that he thought for sure it would be the death of him. A dead give away, but no they couldn’t hear it. He became so sore and cold, but the adrenaline pumped keeping him alert and alive.
