Show synopsis CIA officer Mara Duncan is in bomb-torn Hanoi. Her assignment--get scientist Josh MacArthur and a seven-year-old witness to the Chinese atrocities in Vietnam out of the country safely. Mara and Josh are pursued by a relentless Chinese monk turned commando, Jing Yo, and the Chinese secret service. Their escape is further complicated when SEALs helping Mara gun down Vietnamese soldiers, making them wanted by both sides. After just barely escaping to the United States, Mara and Josh head to New York and the UN, only to be trapped on the 59th Street Bridge as the Chinese assassin closes in. Meanwhile, U.S. Army Advisor Major Zeus Murphy is given an impossible task: prevent the Chinese from landing on Vietnam's coast. Heeding the President's advice to "think outside the box." he concocts a daring mission into the heart of the Chinese fleet. The operation will go down in the annals of history as one of the most daring triumphs of all time, or one of the most foolish suicide raids ever attempted. Or maybe both.
