The first half is crowd scenes, officer scenes, and exterior scenes of the Portland International Airport. The second half of the movie is interior shots of the Detectives and Investigation Unit offices. There is a short scene of the downtown Hilton and a panorama of Portland at night.

Most of the film is devoted to crowd scenes, sheriff’s deputies and their cars and motorcycles, and the airport itself.
