Colonel Smith is not only one of the country's best-known disease experts, he was also a top agent in the highly classified Covert One agency that reports directly to the president of the United States (Academy Award-winner Anjelica Huston). Now, as a killer virus gives way to a far-reaching conspiracy which points to corruption in the highest ranks, Colonel Smith is charged with the task of tracing the origins of the super-bug to its shocking source. In the process of saving the world, he's about to find out just how far some people are willing to go to achieve ultimate power. Blair Underwood and Academy Award-winning actress Mira Sorvino co-star.
