It's a race against time for Hank Galliston after his wife, Laila, is abducted by the international terrorist "White Vincent".

With help from FBI Agent Rebecca "Beck" Riley and his two young magazine staffers, Rachel and Arron, they set out on a journey to find Laila, but soon find their mission is much bigger than just saving one woman.
