Desperate to keep his family alive Jack becomes involved in negotiations between terrorists and various officials, all of which have their own agenda. And the survival of Jack and his family seems low on those agenda. After a rescue attempt turns into a blood soaked disaster Jack has to turn to a needle gun to kill and keep his family alive.
