Omar Yussef must confront the dark side of Gaza—corruption, bribery, murder, and kidnapping—in his struggle to free an innocent man and honor the dead.

Omar and his boss, Magnus, travel to the Gaza Strip to inspect the UN schools in the Gaza refugee camps. The trip is just a routine visit, but upon their arrival, they meet James Cree, the UN security officer for Gaza, who tells them that a teacher at one of their schools has been imprisoned for allegedly spying. As they try to free the teacher and manage the explosive political situation, they find themselves in a dangerous confrontation with Gaza’s warring government factions and the local criminal gangs.
