Summary Bob Logan (Kristofferson) and Ernie Wyatt (Williams) are members of the US Border Patrol in south Texas. They unearth the remains of a man buried at the wheel of a jeep in the desert with a box containing $800,000 in cash and two phone numbers. One number is traced to a person in Washington, D.C., while the other dates back twenty years as the number of the Dallas Police Dept. The patrolmen have unwittingly uncovered a conspiracy surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy. They race against time and an unknown enemy, fighting to stay alive to expose those involved in the assassination.
