The Chairman tells the story of Dr. John Hathaway, a Nobel Prize-winning American scientist teaching at a university in London. Lieutenant General Shelby from the American Embassy asks Hathaway to go on a mission to Communist China to obtain a certain enzyme being developed by his old teacher Soong Li that allows the crops to grow in any climate. Since the country holding the formula to this growth enzyme would be able to control the world, Shelby tells Hathaway that both the United States and the Soviet Union are keen to get the enzyme out of China. Hathaway is reluctant because of a new love affair with an attractive professor, and an opposition he holds to American foreign policy. A call from the President changes his mind and he is off to China. A transmitter is placed in his skull so that he can communicate with London, but Hathaway doesn't realize that the head implant can also be detonated from London, if necessary, and blow Hathaway's head off. In China, Hathaway works with his old mentor Soong Li to perfect the enzyme. As they are near completion, the Red Guard storms the laboratory and attacks Soong Li because of his opposition to the new movement in China, and Hathaway has to escape from the country. Detecting the transmitter in Hathaway's head, the Chinese are in full pursuit.
