      Alan Grofield is a part-time actor. The rest of the time, he's a thief. If asked, many men would willingly risk their lives for their country. But no one did Grofield the courtesy of asking. Rather than go to jail after a botched robbery, Grofield is handed an alternative that lands him in the Canadian wilderness where Third World delegates have secretly gathered for momentous purposes. The situation is volatile, maybe lethal, and so is the beautiful African from Undurwa whose presence propels Grofield toward a wild and unexpected climax.
