Max Ruiz is a broken man. Still struggling to come to terms with the murder of his mother, he soon discovers that Wyatt – his only sibling – was killed in action in Fallujah, Iraq. Shortly after, Max is invited to Washington, D.C. to accept the Medal of Honor on behalf of his late brother. Reluctantly leaving behind a recent love interest, he travels to D.C. to accept the medal. To his horror, the White House suddenly comes under siege, and intel says it’s the Russians. Max looks up to see the President being whisked away toward the West Wing and is soon confronted with a dilemma: take one of the emergency exits and try to save himself, or follow the President and do his best to help save the country.
