The 'MV Nordic Sydney' – a Handymax bulk carrier carrying a cargo of diesel from Saudi Arabia to South Africa – is hijacked by pirates off the Somali coast. The 'HAMAS', which has links with the pirates, wants to get hold of the Captain – an American citizen and a former Israeli Naval Officer – to put pressure on both America and Israel. India joins forces with America and Israel because eight of the fifteen members of the crew are Indians and their rescue is critical for the forthcoming national elections. The three stakeholders plan a rescue mission, but there is a 'leak' in one of the agencies. Can the mission succeed?
