Episode summary:

It's India, 1818 and Lt Col Richard Sharpe and Sergeant Major Patrick Harper are travelling across India, escorting the beautiful Marie-Angelique Bonnet to meet her fiancée.

As Sharpe and company sit down to have dinner with their hosts, the camp comes under attack by the notorious bandit Chitu.

Little does Sharpe know that the adventure has only just begun and that he has inadvertently stumbled across a massive opium trafficking ring...
