Summary
Sam is a misguided museum guard who loses his job, then tries to get it back at gunpoint. Max is a local TV reporter taken hostage with schoolchildren when Sam locks down the museum. It's a desperate move for Sam, a career move for Max. He's on the inside of a live exclusive. Now he must give Sam's story a heroic spin, keep a cynical network anchor at bay and above all, keep America watching. And as Max pulls the strings, the stakes grow higher, darker, madder
