In a fictional near future, Washington D.C. is shaken by several strange events resulting in heightened local and national tensions. John Adams, the enigmatic leader of a shadow organization known as the Trust, realizes that the nation’s capital has come under attack by an alien race called the Drudge. A former Secret Service agent, codenamed “Mr. Ford”, is recruited to learn the origins of this attack. The answer Mr. Ford finds is not the one he expects.
