As the plan moves forward, after overcoming numerous starting obstacles, two US citizens, Daniel Anderson and his best friend Jack Dylan, the clandestine spy operations is finally underway. However, once in China, the team is notified of a change in plans. This new plan would go far beyond spying and become a request to physically smuggle several items past the Hong Kong Royal Police.

They can’t save thousands of Chinese, if they first can’t save themselves.
