Even though the victim seems random, the list of suspects is large, from the obvious to the inexplicable, setting off an investigation with a shocking climax nobody could have predicted. When a sergeant's wife is stabbed to death in her quarters, the army wants - and takes - swift justice. But one internal investigations commander, James Chandler (Lou Diamond Phillips), doesn't buy the official version, and unofficially, digs deeper into the case - so deep - he may end up digging his own grave.
