This unit go in, there's more than one girl so their plan is immediately compromised, and their extraction goes wrong. So, suddenly they find themselves on the run from the bad guys, looking for refuge in Africa, and come across an abandoned farm, or they think it's abandoned. While they're hunkering down they realize that the farm was used as a poachers' stronghold and a breeding place for lions for the hunting industry and the East Asian medicinal market.
