Former government agent Peter Sandza, goes head-to-head against old colleague turned bitter adversary Ben Childress, when Childress tries to kill him, and kidnaps his son, the telepathically-gifted Robin. Childress seeks to use Robin's powers to further secret experiments in 'psi' research for weapons applications. Peter's only link to his son is Gillian Bellaver, an equally gifted teen who is tuned in to Robin's powers. Peter and Gillian join forces in a race against time to save Robin from his captors, and also from himself.
An experience in terror and suspense.

- An experience in terror and suspense.
- Peter Sandza: Mother Nuckells, I'd appreciate it if you didn't untie 'em until after "M*A*S*H" is over. Mother Nuckells: "M*A*SH"? I won't untie 'em until after "Sunrise Semester".
Peter Sandza: Ask Childress if all this was worth his arm. Bob: What? Did you do something to his arm Peter? Peter Sandza: I killed it. With a machine gun.
Peter Sandza: I killed her. I knew I would, the first time I said "Hello".
Gillian Bellaver: Who's Robin Sandza? Dr. Ellen Lindstrom: He is a boy your age. With powers like yours.
Peter Sandza: Hester, look at me. I'm proof - proof that my son is alive or else why would Childress be so anxious to put me away?... Well, thank God I'm somewhere.
