Logline

When a tyrannical administration takes control of the United States government and nullifies the Constitution, Joan Bowman, a veteran and highly-skilled martial artist, joins an underground resistance group to restore America’s beloved freedoms. Too late, she realizes that the group she so idealistically joined is just as corrupt as the administration in Washington. She knows too much to get out alive, so she turns State’s evidence. But when the task force demands she go back to the group to obtain a piece of crucial information, Joan knows she faces certain death. Dispirited, exhausted, and paranoid, she’s hardly on top of her game—and she needs to be or, this time, she’ll pay with her life.
