Maxine Carter is the best-connected courier working in the Pacific Rim. She is constantly on the move, and likes to keep it that way ever since she watched her young child die in a terrible accident. Her current delivery is 14-year-old Alice Cantwell, the spoiled daughter of one of Chinaís richest businessmen.
After a bitter and twisted custody battle, Alice is headed to Hawaii to live with her mother. But, almost as soon as they land on US soil, Max senses things are not right. She soon figures out that Aliceís father is in trouble with the Chinese government, and his daughter may not be the only thing he is trying to smuggle into America. With danger around every corner, itís up to Max to deliver Alice safe and sound to her new home. The only problem is, the longer Max and Alice spend together, the more Max starts to wonder whatís worse, the bad guys after Alice, or Aliceís bad attitude.
