Mark “Buzz” Kramer is gainfully employed as a stunt pilot when a fire nearly destroys the circus where he performs. Because of his prior military service, Kramer is soon offered a job in Afghanistan by his old friend, Harry Whitecliff.
While on the train traveling toward Peshawar, Buzz meets the beautiful Kimberly Smith, and both are inexplicably drawn toward one another. However, when the train arrives at the station, Kimberly disappears without a trace.
A mere three hours later, Buzz finds himself thrust into the thick of an international murder plot. The Shadow Men have taken Harry Whitecliff and plan on beheading him. Buzz is now forced into risking his own life to save that of his old friend. Buzz soon confronts the Shadow Men at an abandoned airfield where he spots a British fighter bi-plane and soon christens it, “The Bee.”
Meanwhile, psychopathic killer, Colonel Von Schroeden, holds Kimberly and several others hostage at an old mission. With Harry at his side, Buzz must now devise a plan to attack and defeat more than five-hundred Shadow Men with only “The Bee,” one old steamroller, some inner-tubes, and two shotguns—all of them manned mostly by young girls.
