Seth Coleman is a young aspiring architect who has been recognized both nationally and internationally by his peers for his professional accomplishments. He has been invited to speak at Lund University in Sweden on innovative residential designs to accommodate and harness suburban sprawl in large cities, which is of great concern in the Scandinavian countries.
A college friend, Fritz Dahl, who lives in Malmo, Sweden is also an architect and is involved in designing a project of great importance to Malmo and Copenhagen, Denmark. Architects and engineers in the mid-1800s had a vision to connect the two countries by a bridge over the Oresund Strait that spans more than ten miles across water. It wasn't until much later architectural designers from both countries developed a workable solution to accomplish their vision. Blueprints were drawn and urgently required to be patented to protect the companies from being victims of industrial espionage.
Fritz engages Seth to help him safely transport certain blueprints from Malmo to Copenhagen, when the plot escalates to an intense violent frenzy as Seth is stalked by corporate pirates.
To exacerbate Seth's fear in this dangerous escapade of eluding corporate pirates, he and Rachel had the worst argument of their marriage the evening before he flew to Sweden compounding his stress; and he is most anxious to return to the States to reconcile the marriage.
