A paramilitary force infiltrates an aerospace compound taking hostages, but issuing no demands. The government responds by sending in its best special operations teams, only to have them obliterated. Live footage of the massacre is cut short by an inexplicable wave of destruction that leaves military leaders stunned and in disbelief. The Commander in Chief turns to his final option: you.
