The former CIA agent Tom is hired by the beautiful CEO Christine to save the life of her son who has been kidnapped by his father and taken to his grandfather in Morocco.
The handsome and clever Tom, with the help of his ex CIA friends, works out a plan to rescue the boy, who is only a pawn in a game of betrayals, led by the ruthless Christine's lawyer Red and her uncle.
At the same time, Tom is also chased by corrupt Government agents who want to arrest him for something he didn't commit.
Christine is anxiously waiting for the coming back of Robert and, of course, Tom - with whom she fell in love during their dangerous adventures in the burning Sahara.

Notes:
The shooting of this movie lasted five months, spent almost all in the middle of the Morocco desert.

The original soundtrack has been written by Ennio Morricone, the famous composer who, in 2007, was awarded the Career Oscar.
