Ray Thompson, a narcotics cop recently back on duty after a suspension, receives a package at the station. This leads to a website that shows a madman holding a child hostage. The child has timed explosives strapped to his body. Lt. Cronin arranges to pay the $2,000,112.35 ransom demanded by this criminal and makes Ray the bagman. When the exchange is bungled, Ray shoots and kills the madman before he sets the explosives off. Ray has to team up with Internal Affairs agent Julia Baker to locate the child before it's too late.[5]
