Escaping from personal tragedy, and the threat of war in Europe, land surveyor, John Crawford, accepts a job offer from Royal Dutch Shell based at its oil refinery in southern Sumatra. Recruited by British Intelligence to locate and construct a secret airbase as part of the Far East allied defence, John's life is further complicated by the discovery of an orphaned tiger cub in the jungle. As the international oil embargo makes the oil refinery a target for the Japanese military, he is caught up in a surprise attack and misses his opportunity to evacuate to Java with the other European civilians.
