The Maidstone-Rist Company is outed by a human rights organization as having ties to businesses in Myanmar, also known as Burma, where oil and gas exploration is done using forced labor. Teddy (James Purefoy) seeks advice about continuing to do business in the country from Daw May Lin Wai, a revered Burmese democratic leader who has been under house arrest for nearly two decades. During his search for Lin Wai, Teddy meets a young girl, desperately in need of a kidney transplant. The girl's father is a suitable donor but he's being kept at a forced labor camp and it is feared that he won't get to his daughter in time to save her life. Back in New York, Philip (Jesse L. Martin) and Olivia (Neve Campbell) desperately try to explain Teddy's behavior to an irate board of directors.
