A Fish & Game marijuana eradication team finds two major marijuana grows in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The team makes an arduous trek into the remote area to destroy the plants and capture cartel members who are illegally making black market drug profits. In the process, they use a helicopter to flush out the growers and corner them in a marijuana garden.
