The ancient Syrian city Palmyra has recently been liberated from ISIS. A special War Explosive Ordnance Disposal team clears the way to the city one kilometre at a time from explosives left by the terrorists. But the closer the sappers get to the center of Palmyra, the more destructive are the explosives. Tension grows between the young team Captain and the most experienced of the EOD experts. And yet, when the team falls into an ambush and the Captain is kidnapped, it's the experienced sapper who sets out for his rescue.
