Corrupt politicians seize control of the Southern nation when they order an investigation into the assassination of the president. Enter James Cross, a colonel in the Confederate Secret Service, sworn to hunt down the culprits. What Cross uncovers in the span of one year will decide the fate of the American continent, as he determines to stand against the very government he has sworn to defend.
