Either by disguise or under the guise of humanitarian efforts, the northern regions of India are beginning to be inhabited by the communist Chinese. Michael Straight is assigned to a remote town in northern India where he can see first hand the infiltration taking place. Dr Bahandi, from the Indian government, is tasked with finding a way to stop this incursion and she uses a method that stirs at the heart of human fear.

Now, Straight is sent to get a glimpse into a possible hidden incursion by the “Red” Chinese. Additionally, Dr. Bahandi played by Leena Naidu is also there in the capacity of a loyal Indian subject. Since intimidation by strength was not working Straight and Dr Bahandi must find another way to force the troops in disguise back where they came from.
