Sheriff LEE HAMMOND (30’s) patrols the roads outside of Russellville, Arkansas. He notices a motorcycle driving more than 100 MPH, and chases it down. Lee lets the driver -- his girlfriend BROOKE DAVIS (early 30’s) -- head on to her work as Control Room Supervisor of the heavily guarded Nuclear One Power Plant. Inside, Brooke and her coworkers are forced to deal with a meltdown drill orchestrated by her boss to test the readiness of the plant. Lee stops by to comply with emergency procedures, after which he and Brooke argue. Brooke is scheduled to leave the plant in a few months and, despite the end of his term as Sheriff, Lee wants to stay. Angered by the argument, Lee leaves.
JACKSON MONROE (middle-aged), a terrorist posing as a janitor, inputs a virus that shuts down the plant security systems. Outside, a car carrier speeds towards the gates, carrying monster trucks and ATVs outfitted with high tech machine guns. The security forces are quickly killed by MILITIAMEN, who round up the other employees as hostages. Inside the control room, Jackson produces a gun and shoots two of Brooke’s coworkers, taking control.
Noticing the smoke rising from the plant, Lee goes to investigate...
