The movie revolves around a Secret Service agent named Alex McGregor (Doug Savant) who is assigned to protect the first lady of the United States, Jennifer Richmond (Brandy Ledford), from a terrorist plot. The movie begins with a group of terrorists, led by a mastermind named Karl Lang (Gregory Harrison), planning to assassinate the first lady during her visit to a hospital. Alex is assigned to protect her by his superior, Secret Service director Ted Gates (Louis Giambalvo), who warns him that Lang is a dangerous and cunning terrorist who has eluded the authorities for years.

As Alex starts his security detail, he discovers that the first lady is not what she seems. Jennifer is power-hungry and manipulative, and she has a secret agenda of her own. Alex also meets the first lady's personal assistant, Ryan Cooper (Daryl Hannah), who seems to be hiding something.
