    • British arms dealer Peter Bleach is on a mission to find the MI5 agent who lied in court as Bleach faced a possible death sentence in India. On his word, Bleach was convicted for dropping 4 tons of weapons over West Bengal to start a civil war.
      Bleach was indeed part of the weapons drop – but as an MI5 informer trying to setup the mastermind behind it, the Dane Niels Holck, who was also on board. But Holck dramatically escaped and Bleach paid the price. Now 15 years later Holck stands before trial in Denmark. Bleach decides to forgive his former enemy and embarks on a quest to find the truth behind the mission.
