A Secret Service Agent is held captive in the trunk of a car and endures mental and physical torture as terrorists attempt to extract information for their plot against the President of the United States.
What appears to be a random kidnapping becomes something more sinister when Secret Service Agent Jeremy Reins discovers he's being used as a pawn in a terrorist plot. Watching the clock tick down to an unknown catastrophe, Jeremy is forced by his captors to listen to the outside world on the brink of collapse, knowing that the only way to save the people he loves is to divulge a secret that he has sworn to protect.

Jeremy Reins mentions that he is in a trunk of a car, likely a long car with a large-cylinder engine due to the large size of the trunk. He wasn't wrong; the car used by the filmmakers was a 1998-2002 second generation series Ford Crown Victoria (or "Crown Vic") four-door sedan with a 4.6 Liter SOHC Modular V8 engine. The car was so chosen for its large and spacious trunk, and because the Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor was also a standard vehicle used by the United States Capitol Police at the time, since the terrorists were pretending to use a police car. This is further evidenced when Jeremy escapes the trunk at the end of the film, the car is a Crown Victoria. See more »
When Jeremy reaches through the tube to the interior of the car, he pulls back his hand with two knuckles scraped raw and a cigarette lighter burn on his hand. The knuckle wounds remain but the cigarette lighter burn disappears within seconds. See more »
Keeps you interested up to the end but unfortunately not the best ending
I must say I liked the movie. Would I watch it again? No. Up to the very end the movie was very interesting and it has been thus far - by my standards one of the best movies that you see 1:20mins only one actor acting.
Acting was good to great. Special attention was given to verbal communications to convey meaning and a big thumbs up for that.
Cinematography and editing was very good, too. It does not get boring or repetitive and the movie maintains an edge right close to the end. Very clever script actually.
I would spoil the movie if I continue to speak about the ending but If you haven't read many reviews (that could spoil the end) and like mystery flick I would recommend this movie.
7/10 for the clever movie but loses some point for the ending.
