Hong Kong's 1997 sovereignty handover to China is just days away. Suddenly, well-intentioned business and family man, Seth Goodall, finds power and politics threatening his and others' way of life. He is given an ultimatum, forcing him to choose between what is right and safety and security.
Not merely livelihoods but even lives are at stake. Seth's frantic attempts to find a solution take him to the heart of China and America's ruthless motivations and actions, as well as a disastrous night in the inner sanctum of Britain's obsolete colonial culture.
On handover day itself, during shrouding torrential downpours, Seth encounters tragedy. He realises he is overpowered. But is all as it seems; or is salvation at hand and will he be able to grasp it? This fast-moving tale of suspense and corruption foreshadows Hong Kong's future and asks the question: what can ordinary people do when faced with brutal power-plays they barely knew existed?
