This low-budget thriller centers on the struggle of a courageous American schoolteacher to protect her students (many of them the children of prominent British and American politicians and industrialists) from the crazed terrorist who holds them ransom. To be in such a desperate situation is the last thing the recently widowed educator expected to happen on her second day in the German school. Their captor is heavily wired with explosives, and it is up to her and to the German leader of an anti-terrorist team to keep the would-be bomber calm and in control of his faculties until they can meet his exorbitant demands.
