A sinister plot is uncovered to assassinate the Royal Family. Married and supposedly retired from duty, Sean Dillon (Rob Lowe) is dragged back into the dangerous world of international espionage when a plan is discovered by Brigadier Ferguson (Kenneth Cranham) to kill off the British Royal Family. Dillon must discover who is behind the callous plot, but the suspects are many and varied. Is the IRA involved, Middle East fundamentalists or old guard Russian leaders tightening their fingers on the trigger that will set Britain on the road to a Republic? The stage is set for a deadly game of cat and mouse between former comrades turned adversaries. In such a barren climate of cold hearts, can love survive and good finally triumph over evil? It must, for all our sakes.
