Multi-billionaire Peter Swann is starting a satellite-supported project that aims to detect disease outbreaks at an early stage in order to be able to intervene more quickly. But the rocket that is supposed to take the satellite into space explodes shortly after it has been launched. His fiancée, doctor Grace Davila, then persuades him to hire security professional Vincent Corbo to investigate the incident.
Peter hires Vincent and his team as bodyguards, while they investigate who is behind the attacks. When they discover that his daughter Jane is missing, they are forced to come up with a risky plan.
Zora go behind her brother's back, while Peter and Grace announce a new launch day for the next satellite. The attacks continue, and Vincent is overtaken by the past.
During a charity gala for the Panacea project, Peter confronts his sister. Vincent is put under pressure, and Grace is called out on a dangerous mission before the gala ends in disaster.
After the surprising deaths, Peter realizes that his half-sister Zora will stop at nothing to expand her power. Before following Grace to the Congo, where the Marburg virus broke out, he transfers his voting rights to his father Reginald. On the way to the airport, Peter and Vincent are attacked by a drone controlled by Zora's security chief Luther.
When Peter and Vincent arrive in the Congo, they learn that Grace has fallen into the hands of a military faction. While Vincent immediately goes to look for Grace, Peter tries to secure her return transport. But the splinter group is not their only problem: Luther Bruhn has followed them and wants to use the chaotic situation for his own purposes.
Thanks to the daring pilot, Grace, Malu and Djamba manage to return safely to the camp. But Grace is very worried about Peter and Vincent, who they had to leave behind, and would like to go straight to find them. The men have fled and ended up in a minefield, which not only endangers their persecutors, but also themselves.
While Peter and Vincent fight for their lives in the Congo, Zora prepares everything in Dublin for a hostile takeover of the Swann Empire. Meanwhile, Peter's daughter Jane starts an affair with Vincent's younger brother Danny and gets on the wrong track. In the Congo, Grace is seriously ill with the Marburg virus and urgently needs medical help.
After Peter has brought his fiancée Grace to safety in New Zealand, he travels to Dublin, where Zora has ensured in his absence that Peter not only loses his share of the family empire, but also has to go to prison for infidelity. In return for a small favor, Vincent helps the Europol agent Neumann to put Tariq Bassari behind bars.
Zora believes her goals are within reach, but she did the math without Vincent. His force is now also supported by the former Europol agent Neumann, who left the agency disaffected. While Peter, Vincent and the others do everything they can to prevent the rocket launch, the Russian investors are sitting on Zora's neck and will not tolerate any delay.
