Alcatraz. Only one man has ever broken out. Now five million lives depend on two men breaking in.

FBI chemical warfare expert Stanley Goodspeed is sent on an urgent mission with a former British spy, John Patrick Mason, to stop Gen. Francis X. Hummel from launching chemical weapons on Alcatraz Island into San Francisco. Gen. Hummel demands $100 million in war reparations to be paid to the families of slain servicemen who died on covert operations. After their SEAL team is wiped out, Stanley and John deal with the soldiers on their own.

The Rock veniva chiamata la prigione di Alcatraz, chiusa nel 1963. La leggenda racconta che mai un solo detenuto sia riuscito a evadere da quella "rocca" situata proprio nel mezzo della baia di San Francisco. È proprio in quella prigione, divenuta meta turistica, che un generale dei marines (Harris) nasconde tre missili con testate di gas nervino: vuole protestare per come il governo ha trattato i reduci del Vietnam. Se non gli daranno un centinaio di milioni di dollari farà esplodere i missili su San Francisco. A risolvere la situazione vengono chiamati un chimico (Cage) e un ex agente inglese (Connery), l'unico detenuto che sia riuscito, trent'anni prima, a evadere da Alcatraz. Complice un certo pentimento del generale, i due riescono nell'impresa.
