On a remote US Army facility that officially dosen't exist, a top-secret group of scientists conduct weapons research when they're horribly and suddenly ripped apart by an unseen enemy.
With the disappearance of the scientists blamed on terrorists, an elite covert ops team commanded by Lt. Tyler (Kevin Sorbo) is tasked with recovering the missing personnel within 24 hours, as well as keeping the operation strictly off the books. Accompanied by a CIA escort Cassandra Mason (Heather Marsden), Tyler's team arrives in country only to find the scientists already dead. They've been savagely dismembered and as one of the team observes, "there's no way an AK-47 can do this to a man. "Tylers commandos engage the terrorists, but after the slaugher it's apparent the supposed terrorists are actually a contingent of US soldiers on a training exercise. Something far stronger and more dangerous than terrorists has multialed the scientists.
Pentagon machinations aside, Mason points out that Tyler's job is just to shoot his gun and keep his mouth shut. But as the bodies pile up and the deadline closes in, the reason for the secrecy becomes clear. Tyler an his team have been sent to detroy a prototype super soldier, and this mission they may not return from.
