Everything is going wrong for depressed journalist Paul Brodie. He stands on the ledge of his apartment and prepares to jump. Just before he does, he receives a telephone call from Melissa, an American childhood friend from the Gulf state of Bahrain. Melissa invites Brodie to visit her in Bahrain, where she’s now working. Brodie gets on a plane hoping that Melissa is the answer to all his problems. But when he gets there, his friend is nowhere to be found. The journalist goes on the run and teams up with Beth, a lonely IT consultant, with problems of her own. As they fight to stay alive, they uncover a political conspiracy which leads them to the Israeli Secret Service, Mossad, to Washington DC, and the campaign of a U.S Presidential election candidate.
