Synopsis:

Jack Walsh is a former police officer who now works as a bounty hunter, finding and bringing in criminals who have skipped bail. Not the kind of job he’d like to do, but hey… it pays the bills!

He finally hits the jackpot when his “boss”, Eddie, wants him to find Jonathan “The Duke” Mardukas and bring him back to L.A. within 5 days, and this will earn him the nice little sum of 100.000 dollars.

It should be an easy job, right? A walk in the park! A piece of cake… or as Eddie calls it, a midnight run! Yeah, well… The Duke stole 15 millions from a Chicago mob boss who, of course, is VERY keen on getting his hands on him. The F.B.I. wants The Duke to testify against the mob boss, so they too want to find him!

And to make matters worse, another bounty hunter, Marvin, also wants to cash in on the deal, so the odds keep stacking up against Jack, and the job that SHOULD have been a midnight run… isn’t anymore!
