Your daughter is my concern and the world's children are *all* our concern!
15 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Boy this was the trip to hell. A guy comes to New York on business and brings his family for a little vacation. First he gets ripped off at the airport in a scam with Luis Guzmán (Boogie Nights , Punch Drink Love, The Limey, Traffic).

Then the hotel rips him off, and while he is commiserating, his daughter disappears.

Turns out that our Government agencies use sleazebags to trap Congressmen and diplomats. One such sleazebag is Adam Ant (Adam and the Ants). He's got the girl, and Edward Woodward has to get her back. It requires a trip to the underbelly of new York City.

And, oh yes, Woodward has a girlfriend show up in this episode. Sara Botsford (Canadian Soap "E.N.G.") tries to tie him down. Good luck with that.
