Agent Susie Dunn is in charge of finding the students, and the person behind the kidnapping. The only problem is that her niece, Amber, is one of the hostages. Meg, Amber’s mother and Susie’s sister is a high profile CEO of an International IT Corporation. A tense relationship between the sisters adds another highlight to the show.
