The year is two thousand and thirteen. The United States is braced for a potential government shutdown and a US default on its debt. Washington is at the height of political dysfunction.Renowned Harvard professor, Winston Bernard Huntster II, has just aired a controversial documentary on the History Channel. To the millions of American viewers, it depicts an eerily striking comparison to the egocentric arrogance of the political landscape of present day. As Huntster had intended, the weekly series ignites an indignation toward the politicians on Capital Hill. It is the fuel that will fire a movement to take back Washington D.C.
Now, the man behind the firestorm is found dead in Boston Common from a gunshot wound to the head. His death has outraged an angry nation and incited its citizens to take to the streets. They will soon learn there is but one weapon that can crack the stronghold on Capitol Hill–the power of Article V.
