Fate plays its hand, binding ex-firefighter Aaron Landers to the powerful Mexican state police Commandant Luis Gutierrez, when he saves the lives of Luis' sons in Cancun. Aaron is trying to grow his dive business in Cancun and needs an injection of cash. Luis is being pursued by thugs trying to collect a gambling debt. The two men agree to a series of small crimes to bring in easy money. Aaron places his trust in Luis until the man orchestrates a risky international crime.
