Plot – In a very near future the entire city of New York is controlled by ungovernable gangs and has been transformed into a huge maximum-security prison from which no one can escape. However, one day the president's plane precipitates into the city after being hijacked by a group of terrorists. Saved by a special capsule, the President is taken hostage by the gang of "Duke", who demands his freedom in exchange for the President's release. So the police send Jena Plinski into the city, giving him just 24 hours to accomplish his mission.
