It's 1900 and China is in chaos. The Boxers, a cult of young peasants who blame the foreign barbarians - particularly the missionaries - for the nation's ills, are rampaging through the country killing foreigners.  China's Dowager Empress - 'The Dragon Lady' - secretly encourages them.

Simon Fonthill, former captain and army scout, his wife Alice, Jenkins, his former batman and trusted companion, and Chang, a missionary's adopted son, volunteer to slip through the enemy lines to bring help. It proves to be Fonthill's most dangerous mission yet.
