Dr. Lillian Whyte is swept into a dangerous world when the camp of her Kenya mission clinic is destroyed by war profiteers.
After a decade of trudging through the hectic emergency room, the luster and idealism of being a physician has left Lillian disillusioned. Concerned about her swelling cynicism about her job, her supervisor volunteers her to lead a group of residents on a medical mission to Kenya. An ocean away from her troubled, she finds comfort in aiding local inhabitants.
The tranquility turns to chaos when her clinic is ambushed by militant thieves led by a conniving oil profiteer. Faced with the prospect of permanent captivity and/or probable death, Lillian must find the resolve to outwit her captors and escape.
