Time is running out for kidnapped Jasmine Delaney on Home and Away, Will her husband Robbo and policeman Colby Thorne manage to race to the rescue?

When Colby finally gets a handle on the situation, Lenny, who is one of the men who kidnapped Jasmine, eventually confesses thug boss Des (Matt Zeremes) has taken Jasmine to an abandoned powerplant.
With no time to waste, Robbo and Colby speed off to the powerplant, where Robbo is determined to rescue his wife once and for all.
But as a tense hostage situation begins, with Des armed and dangerous, will everyone make it out of the abandoned powerplant alive?
