After Gen Ferris's missionary father commits suicide in 1950, it is up to her to get out of Burma alone.

But Gen is captured by Red Chinese forces and imprisoned with six other lost travelers. She vows to escape, not believing that her destiny lies in captivity, never dreaming of the forces that will finally come to her aid....
