In the days following the presidential election, an idealistic young researcher uncovers a series of deaths among Electors and must race against time and a secret, deadly efficient conspiracy.
When Matthew Yamashita discovers a series of unexplained deaths among Electors, he and his advisor must work to get the information out and stop the plot. They are joined by an FBI agent.
Although initially skeptical, she, too, begins to glimpse just how deep the conspiracy goes. Theirs becomes a race against time to get their information to light before the Electors meet on December 19. The conspirators always seem one step ahead of them, and it’s unclear who, if anyone, they can trust.
