Four rogue Secret Service agents, led by one named Baron, commandeer the house of war-widow Ellen. Her home is a prime sniper position for their plan to assassinate the President on his visit to the small town of Suddenly. The men fool the local cops except for one, Todd. A washed-up former war hero and deputy who is now the town drunk, Todd served with Ellen's deceased husband and has developed romantic feelings for her over the years. But she rebuffs his advances. Todd visits the house and is immediately suspicious of Baron, but no one will listen to the ravings of a drunk. Once Todd realizes what is going on, he manages to kill one of Baron's crew, but is captured. Now he and Ellen must find a way to stop Baron and his men before they kill the President.

That's the problem, it doesn't mean the same thing any more. The great men and women of this country used to sacrifice their lives for this flag, no questions asked. No questions asked. If we're prepared to do anything we can to achieve our goals, then the American People can stand tall and proud once more. And America can regain its rightful place as the greatest country on earth.
