2006, Cairo. Egyptian/American citizen Zaina Anwar has been imprisoned by the Mubarak government for subversion. Her cousin, a member of Egypt's elite Unit 777, reaches out to former CIA paramilitary officer Ben Williams with a plea--break his cousin out of prison and ferry both of them to political asylum in the US.
What starts off as a simple rescue operation explodes into an international incident. Trapped in the city and hung out to dry, Williams must use his wits to stay one step ahead of the Egyptian government and escort Zaina and her cousin to safety.
