Synopsis

Marked for death by a biker gang, ex-Marine convict Tim Kearney just got one last chance to walk out of jail alive. A scheming DEA agent needs somebody to impersonate recently deceased druglord Bobby Z... and Tim happens to be a dead ringer. It's a risky proposition, but if Tim plays his part right, he may be able to claim Bobby Z's smoking hot ex-girlfriend and a cool fortune in illegal profits. Unfortunately, taking on Bobby Z's name also means taking on his bloodthirsty enemies. Caught in the crossfire, Tim runs for his life as he tries to find a way out of his deadly masquerade.
