THE LADY DIPLOMAT: HOSTAGE IN MANILA
(GERMANY/2016/CRIME & THRILLER)
DIE DIPLOMATIN - ENTFÜHRUNG IN MANILA
兩名德國遊客在菲律賓海岸失踪。Thomas Eick領導的國務院成立了一個工作小組，派遣特使Karla Lorenz前往馬尼拉。Lorenz原本擔任駐巴林助理大使，但由於她再三堅持將自己的道德原則置於外交使團的命令之上，因而被撤換。現在，她的任務是與前反叛分子和菲律賓國防部長傑Jejomar Maceda取得聯絡，兩人幾年前曾有一段情。Karla再次採取非傳統方式解救這兩名遊客，這躺任務的確非常危險，甚至可能威脅到Karla自己的性命。
When two tourists are kidnapped in the Philippines, the State Department has no choice but to send firebrand Karla Lorenz, who has a tendency to go it alone - but at least she gets the job done, even if it means risking her own life...
Two German tourists disappear off the coast of the Philippines. A task force convenes in the State Department, led by Thomas Eick, who sends special envoy Karla Lorenz to Manila. Lorenz was assistant ambassador to Bahrain until recently, but was rotated out prematurely because she once again insisted on placing her own moral principles over her orders from the diplomatic corps. Now, her mission is to get in touch with former rebels and Philippino Minister of Defense Jejomar Maceda, with whom she had an affair years ago. Karla once again goes rogue to try and free the two tourists, which proves to be a dangerous assignment indeed. Karla is about to risk everything - even her own life.
