Synopsis: Archeology Professor Robert Burns is on location leading an important dig in the ancient ruins on the Far Eastern Chinese border.

He is locked up in a Chinese prison where he is guilty until proven innocent. His loving wife Maya vows to help get him out of jail. The DEA finally convinces the Chinese military that Robert may be of more help to them outside jail by leading them to the real smugglers. Once he leaves his Chinese prison cell Robert would rather enjoy his freedom back in the U.S. and keep his past behind him, but The Tong catches up to him a

My name is Tommie Ling, | and I'm based out of Hong Kong...

investigating narcotics | and other related crimes.

I was assigned to work | with an American D.E.A. Agent, Ed Grey.

We've been in six countries | tracking an international drug ring.

I'm here with the cop | from Hong Kong Narcotics.

She says this is | a typical Chinese gang takeover.

They didn't spare anyone.

As I look at the men | seated around this table...

I see the beginning of a new era.

Like all great conglomerates | around the world...

the Chinese families are merging.

A united tong is powerful enough | to push other syndicates...

out of business.

There will come a day | when the Chinese families...

control the entire market.

This is a dangerous time.

We must take special care...

so that nothing...

and no one interferes | with this historic event.

It will be the most important merger | and business transaction...

in the history of the Chinese families.

Would you look at that? It's so beautiful.

It only has one eye.

You know what they say:

"In the land of the blind, | the one-eyed man is king."

As a consequence | of his recent meticulous excavations...

at the Yangling Tombs...

Professor Robert Burns | has been selected to be the recipient...

this university's | most distinguished academician. ;

Professor Burns.

I'd like to thank my loving wife, Maya...

dedicated assistant Yi, | and her father, my mentor...

Professor Luo Dazhong.

Without them I wouldn't be here today.

I look very much forward | to my next dig in China.

Thank you so much.

What's an ex-jarhead pilot | doing over here in China?

Some of the places I set down, | that's why they hire me.

You flew 130s and | now you're flying this little piece of shit.

You're sure going down in the world.

Tell you what.

The more off the beaten track it is, | the better I like it.

That's impressive. | Is that why they call you Crash?

No, it's just a little joke, Professor.

They call me Crash because I never have.

Next time you need to go somewhere, | call me.

You're from New York. | I run a flight school back there.

Stop by sometime, okay?

Look at that view!

Your site is right over that second hill.

These artifacts are just amazing.

Ancient Chinese emperors stored the ashes | and spirits of their loved ones in these.

They used to be used in processions | of the Third Dynasty.

They're all hand-carved from jade.

- Let's get these ready for shipping. | - Okay, Professor.

Make sure you date and log all these notes.

Remember to sign them, Professor.

The seals have to be closed | according to customs specifications.

All right, let's get these | up to the transport shack.

- Who's this guy over here? | - I've never seen him before.
