With the help of his colleagues, Dominic quickly establishes that the kidnappers are amateur street kids and out of their depth.

Despite having to leave his family again so soon, he flies to Cape Town to appease the kidnappers’ demand by promising $100,000 in cash.

But when the release is botched and they strike again in Britain, the kidnapper, Willard’s (John Hannah) motives become far more sinister.

With trouble brewing at home with his wife Sophie (Natasha Little) and teenage daughter, and his team, boss Angela (Helen Baxendale) and ambitious assistant Carrie (Amara Karan) pushed to the limit, King must draw on all his reserves to bring the victims home alive.
