"SWEEPERS" is a non-stop, action-packed thriller set
in war ravaged Angola.
Christian Erickson (Dolph
Lundgren) is a leader in the Humanitarian Order of Chivalry on
assignment in Angola with his team of 'sweepers' who are attempting
to clear land mines from around rural villages where villagers
and children are being maimed and killed daily. During one sweeping
operation, Christian's 11 year-old son Johnny follows his father
to a mine field and during a rebel attack is killed when he steps
on a land mine.
Back in America, a terrorist
attack at the home of a US senator utilizes a new super advanced
A-6 land-mine smuggled in from Angola. Bomb squad expert Michelle
Flynn, who watched her fiance die in the attack, is sent on a
covert operation to Angola to recover an A-6 mine, so that the
political intrigue behind its manufacture can be revealed.
Michelle joins forces
with two army mine sweepers, Jack Trask and Ray Gunn but their
mission turns deadly when Jack and Ray are killed as the very
land mine they had retrieved blew their helicopter apart, leaving
Michelle alone and stranded in Angola. Having witnessed Christian,
drunk in a local bar, stand up to the local thug Yager who terrorizes
villagers with land mines in order to protect his diamond mining
and smuggling rackets, Michelle seeks out his help.
Together they retrieve
an infamous A-6 land mine from the same field where Christian's
son was killed. In their quest to find the source of the deadly
new land mines, Michelle and Christian uncover a devious plot
to ship a trainload of the mines to the US.
In an explosive showdown,
Christian and Michelle battle Yager's thugs in a 'to-the-death'
fight through diamond mines and tortuous jungle until they finally
uncover the real and most unsuspected villain behind the deadly
