Minty Mehta (aka MM) likes to play dangerously - he is making a documentary about the Indian army's conflict with the Pakistanis, but drug-fuelled parachute jumping with Major Rodrigues is only part of the fun.
Things are due to get serious at Bunker 13 - some very re-saleable military hardware and 100kg of the finest grade heroin lands in the Indian officers' possession.
Using his cover as a magazine editor, MM orchestrates a deadly game of quadruple cross, involving the Indian Secret Service and the Army.
But what he hasn't accounted for is the effect his affair with the boss's daughter will have on his complicated twilight life . . .
