A giant meteor is expected to crash into earth in a matter of days - a crash that would cause global devastation. There is only one chance to prevent impending doom. The government must find Dr. David Corbett, the creator of the Thor Project - a 'Star Wars'type of satellite system, and use his help to annihilate the fragment. But before Corbett can be contacted, he is kidnapped by military religious cult-leader Thomas Payne, a zealot who believes that Judgment Day is rightly upon us. The government is forced to enlist the help of Payne's archenemy Matthew Reese, a convicted killer, who is the only man who would know Payne's whereabouts. But will they have time to find Dr. Corbett and save the world?
