Dex Dellum (Jeff Fahey) the publisher of a wildlife magazine, sends his fiancée Katy Mazur (Pamela Gidley) to Swaziland to snap images of the Taita Falcon, which is supposed to be extinct. There she runs into Grant Orion (Eric Roberts) an enigmatic figure that she first notices when he jumps off a cliff. Turns out that Grant is an ex-stuntman, what they call a high man- namely guys that handle the stunts involving falls from dizzying heights. Before long, and despite her commitment to her fiancée, Katy is tossing the sheets with Grant.
Following their heated encounter Katy is drugged and a list of the world's top assassins is planted somewhere on her person. When Katy arrives in London, her hotel room is ransacked and customs shred through her luggage without pointing out what it is they are looking for. She meets with Grant again hoping for some answers, when he reveals that things are not what they seem with Dex her fiancée and that he himself is an Interpol agent. That is before the bullets rip through the silence of the restaurant...
