The deal is cut short when things take an unexpected turn, with an employee is killed moments before the papers are signed.
She is made aware of the fact that her five-year-old son, Rajiv has been abducted and that the kidnappers want the new technology in exchange for her son. She finds herself torn in between a conspiracy to steal her technology and her son’s safety.
