Outline

When he is informed that his twin brother has died in Beirut, basketball coach Craig Brandt (Michael Paré) flies to Lebanon to investigate for himself. His brother was a US Marine who, according to the military, died in an explosion during an anti-terrorist operation. At the US Embassy, Craig meets with Charles Wolf (Lorenzo Lamas), who backs up the official story. Nevertheless, Craig has the uncanny feeling that his brother is still alive – and that he is the only one who can save him.
