November, 1999. A peaceful demonstration to stop the World Trade Oraganization talks quickly escalates into a full-scale riot, and soon a State of Emergency is declared by the Mayor of Seattle. The streets are mayhem, and the WTO is paralyzed. Caught in the crossfire of civil liberties and keeping the peace are Seattle residents, including its beleaguered mayor, a SWAT riot officer on the streets and his pregnant wife. The choices they all make will change their lives forever.
