Borderline identical to his previous effort Belly of the Beast, Seagal plays William Lansing, a former CSA agent with a Dark and Troubled Past who now works on nature reserve taking care of injured animals. He's sponsoring a Polish orphan named Irena Morawska (Ida Nowakowska), and is her pen-pal. When her letters cease, it transpires that the orphanage she was in was a front for a human trafficking organisation, and that she's been sold into slavery. Despite the fact that he's not her father and has never actually even met her, Lansing marches of to Poland to rescue the gal and shoot/beat-up all involved in the trafficking business.
This film provides examples of:
- Papa Wolf: he isn't the girl's father, but close enough.
- Sword Fight
- The Voiceless: The pickpocket kid.
- Woman in White: Irena dons a white dress towards the end.
