When Ashe Corven (Vincent P''rez) and his 8-year-old son Danny (Eric Acosta) witness the gang slaying of a drug dealer, Drug kingpin Judah Earl (Richard Brooks) has them both murdered and thrown into the bay. One year later, on the anniversay of their murders, a mysterious crow communicates telepathically with a young woman, Sarah (Mia Kirshner), and draws her to the bay where Ashe is ressurected from the dead.

His mission now established, Ashe transforms himself into the crow and begins his deadly rampage, working his way through the ranks of Earl's drug dealers.
