Dave McPherson is a retired Army Ranger and small businessman in California's central valley. His wife, Maggie, is dying of the cancer that has wracked her body for months. As she breathes her last breath she tells Dave prophetically that he will have to take up arms against an enemy that is coming right to his doorstep. At that very moment United States President Sranga lays dying in a San Diego hospital from a gunshot wound to the brain. Just before he expires a demonic force takes control of his body and his mind and prevents the President's death. Sranga's recovery puts Dave McPherson on a collision course with an out of control federal government that has declared war on him and anyone else that defies the President. Dave has chosen t to back down from this fight. In fact he has prepared himself to make a stand and fight against those that would deprive him of his rights, his property and his life. But the massive military force arrayed against him might make this stand his last stand.
