Addison, Ben; welcome to Gemini Force One..."
When Ben Carrington's father dies, his
mother decides to set up a mountain-rescue team, based in her homeland Austria.
But when disaster strikes again, she joins forces with a rich businessman

observing the heroic rescues carried out by the Gemini Force, of course.

And I just know that
the rest of the series are going to be a million times more amazing, now that
the Gemini Force has been set up and
