Kandahar, Afghanistan. 1999.
A team of British mine clearance engineers are working for the Taliban government in the scorching deserts of Southern Afghanistan, clearing the vast minefields after decades of conflict. Amidst the draconian laws of this extremist regime, one of the team, Richard Lee, an ex-British Army bomb disposal expert, falls foul of corrupt local police chief Ashiq Khan, who then instigates a manhunt to find and kill the infidel. Now embroiled in a deadly game of intrigue and betrayal, Richard must escape on foot across the border into nearby Pakistan, but during his journey he is ambushed by a force of rebel guerrillas, enemies of the government, who agree to help him flee the vengeful Taliban.
