Dropping 4 tons of illegal weapons over India can be a dangerous deed. Former British arms dealer Peter Bleach is convicted for dropping 4 tons of weapons over the West Bengal in order to start a civil war - facing a possible death sentence in India. In fact, Bleach was indeed part of the weapons drop - but he was working as an MI5 informer to catch the mastermind behind it, the international activist Niels Holck, who was also on board the plane. As Niels Holck during the night dramatically escape the Indian police in Mumbai Airport where the plane is detained, Peter Bleach is left to rot 8 years in an Indian jail under horrible circumstances. This is the story of one the world's largest illegal weapon drops, and how it came to pass with the knowledge of three governments. It is a story of a fatal flight of two men; built on the subjective reconstructions of the main characters who will re-live the actions and psychological tension on board the plane, where both were trying to deceive the other.
