Episode One 

Srinagar, Kashmir. Dominic King is negotiating the release of a British Asian family kidnapped while on holiday visiting their son Mahavir. As the handover is completed, the police arrive and a shoot-out ensues. The kidnappers (Anwar and Leela) get away with Mahavir and in their panic they board a tourist bus, taking all the passengers hostage. Dominic must negotiate with Anwar, whilst trying to convince the police not to attack. 

Beth, a housewife in Manchester, sees the coach on the news and realises her parents and husband, Shaun, are hostages, and heads to Srinagar. When Anwar learns his family has been arrested he threatens to kill a hostage an hour until they are released. 

Dominic persuades Anwar to give him until dawn to get the family released but things escalate when Carrie and Dominic discover there is someone important on board the bus.
