Marine Cole Hickel (Boxletiner) vows revenge on evil Klaus Hermann (Bresnahan) who has killed his daughter. Hermann has an obsession with murdering people and photographing their dead bodies. He also has diplomatic immunity as his mother, Gerta (Foster), is the President of Paraguay, and therefore he cannot be prosecuted by conventional means. Hickel travels to Paraguay and teams up with a smuggler name Cowboy (Drago) to take his own revenge.
