A tale of espionage that spans from the cold war to the present day
The story spans the lives of two Americans and a Chinese woman that meet in Beijing in their youth and are destined to cross paths again because of a secret.
Jack Ford finds out that he has a daughter out of the blue and that she is in danger and that he needs to return to China, a country he last visited as a young man. In 1989 he was an American spy, undercover and reporting on the student activists challenging the ruling government. He meets Xia, a student activist and they fall in love. The backdrop of the Tiananmen Square massacre sets the scene for their relationship, as the Chinese students battle the government forces and are arrested and imprisoned. Jack returns to the States and they lose touch until Xia sends him a letter with the startling news that he is the father of her daughter.
Jack enlists the help of his old friend Peter before returning to China but the meeting proves disastrous. Jack ends up with a deadly piece of espionage that the Chinese need to keep out of the hands of the Americans and Jack is caught up in a deadly battle between the two sides. At stake is the life of his daughter and the tentative peace between China and America. Jack has to face the ultimate choice, his country or his child.
