John poses as a Secret Service agent and accompanies Natalie on a covert peace-talk mission. Before long, their helicopter is shot down and they're left stranded in the middle of nowhere, with very dangerous people on the hunt for them.
John tracks the cabal, leading him to a lawless Mexican town, where he's drawn into a dangerous showdown between a drug lord and the town's police chief. Meanwhile, Natalie probes romantic ties between her late husband and her political foe's lover.
The Vice President (Sharon Stone) deploys John Case (Jeff Hephner) to rescue the FBI director's kidnapped daughter in the series premiere of this drama about a top secret agent working in the shadows to protect the U.S. from global and domestic threats.
