Nothing can bring more excitement, than a well-done thriller; this film is a clear assertion to that. (James Van Der Beek), is Agent Jake Kelly, an active FBI agent in the early 80’s, who’s assigned the task to investigate he murder of a high profile Taiwanese Professor, working at a US college. His investigative efforts, soon uncovers trails that leads him to the Island nation of Taiwan. There he gets some much-needed help, from the widow of an assassinated Spy. The evidence uncovered, left no doubt as to a wide spread conspiracy involving the US State Department, The Chinese Mafia; to name a few… Not an easy task, especially when operating in a foreign country where the only person you can trust is called— No one!

A tight political thriller, reminiscent of the classic 70’s thrillers… A movie, so well written and executed to keep you glued till the last word.
