At a party where New Orleans’ rich and influential are gathered, model cop Reed Ware takes everyone hostage. Negotiator Caroline Wallace is called to the scene. Caroline had a crush on Reed years ago, so she is completely baffled by his behavior. Reed demands a street kid, Holly Bayard, be brought to the party along with a helicopter. When the negotiations take a wild turn, Caroline is taken hostage during Reed and Holly’s dramatic escape. Unfortunately for Caroline, the more she learns, the more danger she’s in.
