After escaping an assassin who tries to kill him, Max Gordon learns that his explorer father is missing. Determined to find him, Max discovers a clue which leads him to the inhospitable wilderness Namibia and the discovery of a potential ecological disaster masterminded by the ruthless Shaka Chang.
