Armed with the knowledge that their suspect has planted three nuclear bombs in three U.S. cities, black ops interrogator H and FBI Agent Helen Brody resort to extreme methods to get the confession that could save millions of innocent lives. A former nuclear expert, Younger has turned against his country. Shortly after Younger plants his bombs, he's apprehended by the nation's top anti-terrorism task force. But while Younger is in custody, the FBI can't get him to reveal where the nukes have been hidden. H may be able to get an answer, but once Agent Brody gets a glimpse of his tactics, she begins to wonder whether the good guys have finally stooped to the level of the terrorists, or if H is truly justified in fighting fire with fire.
