James Mitchell knew his family would live and work at the top secret Bio-Lab 4 military base for all of their careers. Twenty-three years later, the lab has become an embarrassment and the Army shuts it down. They decide to keep the government’s dirty secrets safe by killing everyone. At the last celebration, the Army colonel, Forrester poisons the food with a deadly virus. Mitchell, the only survivor, watches his family and friends die writhing in agony from the virus he created. Now, with his sanity breaking, Mitchell wants revenge on the government that killed his family and stole his life. On July 4th, 2026, three million people flood into Washinton DC for America’s 250th birthday celebration. Veteran DC cop, Michael Dorado, heads the city’s anti-terrorism taskforce for the biggest celebration of the decade. On that morning, Mitchell sends Dorado the message, “When the crowds are at their peak, I will detonate a biological weapon that will spray the nearby people with a deadly pathogen.” Now Dorado is in a battle against time and the crowds to stop a madman before he unleashes the lethal virus on the world.
