Diamonds have been found in Canada's remote North West Territories. Every year billions of dollars worth of these precious stones are shipped south in the cargo compartments of commercial passenger aircraft.
Donald MacKay has 35 years in as a Maintenance Crew Chief with North Air. Life is piling up on poor Donald. He has lost a good friend in a horrific accident, his wife is garnishing his wages and pension, and his incompetent megalomaniac boss is harassing him.
