Georgia Wells believes that her husband, Will, died in a plane crash in the Congo three years ago. Since the accident, she has lived as a recluse in the Welsh countryside, away from civilization and the comforts of 21st century life. But her life changes when she sees Will in the background during a televised news report about the Congo. That revelation shocks Georgia, and she becomes determined to prove that Will is still alive. She travels to Kinshasa, Congo's capital, for the first time since the crash and reunites with Will's business partner Judith and a local journalist whose wife also perished in the crash. Unaware of the danger she faces, Georgia sets out across Congo in an attempt to find Will. Kate Beckinsale stars as Georgia in her first starring role on a TV series.
