Synopsis: This suspense-filled political thriller stars Kevin Pollak as President Walter Emerson; writer/director Rod Lurie is a former film critic. The President, his chief of staff (Timothy Hutton), national security advisor (Sheryl Lee Ralph) and a network TV crew find themselves stranded at a diner in Colorado after a snowstorm. A news bulletin announces that Udei Hussein, son of Saddam Hussein, has invaded Kuwait and killed several hundred U.S. troops. When the President threatens Iraq with a nuclear strike, Hussein counter-threatens. Tense, edge-of-your-seat viewing.
