1 hr. 40 min.
A perfectly typical broadcast evening on a major network is interrupted by a shocking special news bulletin. Anchorman John Woodley (Ed Flanders) and his partner, Susan Myles (Kathryn Walker), reveal that terrorists have threatened to detonate an H-bomb off of the coast of South Carolina if the Navy refuses to agree to their demands -- the disarmament of a key nuclear weapons facility. Soon, the local team covering the story in Charleston is taken hostage and becomes the terrorists' mouthpiece.
