On his way to prison, Alvin Sanders meets John Jaster who stole and hid $42 million dollars in gold. Before dying, he gives Sanders a cryptic message that makes no sense to either Sanders or Edgar Clanteen, the investigator from the U.S. Treasury trying to find the gold. Clanteen gets Sanders released from prison with an implanted tracking device to try and lure out Jaster’s partner, Bristol, who also wants to know where the gold is stashed. As Sanders tries to put his life back together after prison, he has no idea that a dangerous criminal is out looking for him.
