From the first DVD release: A reconnaissance team in the jungles of Peru comes across Army Special Forces Captain Jim Ellison, the sole survivor of a horrific plane crash. Five years later, Jim is a detective in Cascade, Washington, who has discovered that the heightened senses he gained surviving in the jungle are both a help and a hindrance in tracking down a terrorist bomber called the Switchman. With the assistance of a grad student named Blair Sandburg, he attempts to harness his powers before more innocent people die at the hands of a killer.
