Plot

Former US Marine Corps AV-8B pilot Harry Tasker leads a double life: to his wife Helen and his daughter Dana, he is a mild-mannered computer salesman often away on business trips; but secretly, a secret agent for a United States intelligence agency named Omega Sector. Harry, operating alongside fellow agents Albert "Gib" Gibson and Faisil, infiltrates the party of suspected arms dealer and terrorist financier Jamal Khaled in Lake Chapeau, Switzerland. Stealing Jamal's records, Harry and his team learn that American antiques dealer Juno Skinner (Tia Carrere) received a suspicious payment from Jamal. Harry visits her office undercover posing as a corporate art consultant. Workmen at Juno's business are really members of a terrorist group known as "Crimson Jihad", led by Salim Abu Aziz. Suspicious, Aziz and two of his men follow Harry and attempt to kill him. Harry slays the henchmen but loses Aziz in a pursuit. As a result, Harry misses his birthday party that his wife and daughter have prepared for him and that he had promised to attend.
