He is both agent and weapon - a critical line of defence for the Secretary General of the United Nations. He does not even officially exist. Acclaimed action star Wesley Snipes is Neil Shaw, an American agent who must uncover an international plot to bring down the United Nations on the eve of a historic summit with China. A group of murdered Chinese refugees is found in a container in the New York harbour, setting off a bizarre and mysterious chain of events leading to the murder of the Chinese U.N. Ambassador. When Shaw is accused of the crime, he must go undercover - in effect, vanish from his own life, to solve the mystery and clear his name. He can trust no one except a beautiful U.N. translator (Marie Matiko) who may hold the key to a global conspiracy of cataclysmic proportions.
