Sam grabs Viva and they both run away from the pursuing and avenging bandits. During the escape, Sam is impressed with Viva's courage and intelligence. The attraction between them also sizzles.

Viva is sent to deliver a priceless Thai artifact to a museum curator in Bangkok. When she has completed her mission, she has been rewarded by a relaxing vacation at the Four Season's Hotel not knowing that the curator has ordered someone for her demise. Viva is drugged and sold into slavery.
When Sam checks in on her, he is surprised to find her gone and her room with blood. Terrified to what might have happened to her, he searches for her until he finds her in a hotel room with a big guy on top of her. Viva furiously makes a way of escaping from being raped by the foreign man in front of her. She has successfully killed the man when Sam drops in the room. Relieved that Sam is there, they escape the hotel with bad guys and police chasing after them. Sam brings her back to their headquarters. There they found out that the man she has killed has been an international most wanted criminal. He is in the city to trade uncut diamonds for a secret military weapon. They found out that the weapon is so powerful and can be aimed from a satellite. The weapon has already destroyed the Sri Lanka's dam and causes the sudden volcanic eruption in Guatamela. Sam seeing that Viva can't be safe anywhere decides to keep her in their base. Fortunately Viva is a fountain of knowledge and resources which speed up their catching of the man who possesses the weapon. With Viva's connection to the wealthy Italian and Russian mafia, she disguises herself as a buyer of the weapon. Sam with the other Dragon One team members are able to locate and infiltrate the enemy's place and kill the enemy and destroy the weapon.
