Charlie Sheen plays Bobby Bishop, a Presidential advisor and political Spokesperson. When a well-known college professor accosts Bishop on the street, warning of a conspiracy within the Federal government that he's discovered, the professor is assassinated before he can tell the details and dies in Bishop's arms. Thereafter, Bishop becomes a target of those responsible. Pursued by federal and local police, and the conspirators, there's no one left for Bishop to trust, except a local newspaper reporter. Together, the unlikely duo have to figure out what's happening and who's responsible before the conspirators can fully enact their plan.
