On the eve of China's invasion of Tibet, a veteran pilot is enmeshed in a fierce struggle for survival Before the sun can set on Jack Drummond's career as a pilot in the British Navy, he must complete one final flight-a weapons drop over Tibet to aid guerilla fighters in their border dispute with the Red Chinese.
