Crawford Sloane is the lead anchorman at CBA news. One day his wife, son, and father are kidnapped by terrorists. The news crew feels they can do a better job with their resources and contacts of finding out who the terrorists are and where they took Sloane's family, than can the FBI. So Harry Partridge leads up a team of crack TV people, who search for clues throughout the northeast to try to find out who took Sloane's family and why. The trail leads them across the country and ultimately to South America, where drug lords known as the Shining Path are trying to overthrow the Peruvian government. How can Harry Partridge find out where the hostages are and how to get them out? The news crew comes through, with a very dramatic rescue at the end.
