Ten years ago the peace and quiet of a tiny tropical atoll in the South Pacific is shattered when a covert scientific-military reseach operation, code name ''Elvis'', goes terribly wrong. Leaving alive only the scientist behind the formula and the now disgraced officer-in-charge. Ten years later, on a hot summer day in a tiny Montana town, two young men are in the wrong place at the wrong time - Tim Mason, a short-order cook and Arlo, an ice cream delivery man. When Mason's mentor, scientist Dr.Richard Long is fatally wounded by Major Andrew Brynner, he entrusts the stunned young man with ''Elvis''. The highly volatile and frozen chemical substance could kill every living thing within hundreds of miles if it melts and activates. With his dying breath, Dr.Long begs Mason to keep the deadly chemical on ice and safely deliver it to Fort Magruder, 90 miles away... transporting it in Arlo's refrigerated ice cream truck. Unfortunately, Major Brynner and his tactical team are bent upon retrieving Dr.Long's creation. He has waited patiently for ten years for retribution and isn't about to let a couple of amateurs stop him.
