Sam Baily is a fired museum guard holding a class of little kids, their teacher, and his ex-boss hostage at gunpoint while America watches the story unfold in living and dying color. Max Brackett is a TV network reporter who has fallen from grace and is willing to sacrifice everything for a blood wet dream of news drama come true. They're as different as two men can be but the goal that binds them is as simple as it is dangerous

Soon, these two men will form a bond of such mutual significance that it will forever change the course of their lives.
