Synopsis: In 2079, in Washington, the ex-CIA Operative Snow is brutally interrogated, accused of treason against the United States. The chief of the secret service Scott Langral believes that he shot the agent Frank in a hotel room. Meanwhile, the idealistic daughter of the president of the USA, Emilie Warnock, is visiting MS One, a maximum security prison in outer space expecting to find evidence that the prisoners are actually guinea pigs of a huge corporation. When one of her bodyguards loses a hidden pistol to the dangerous prisoner Hydell, he subdues the staff in the central control room and releases the prisoners, including his brother Alex who becomes the leader of the riot. Now the veteran agent Harry Shaw offers freedom to Snow if he succeeds in rescuing the president's daughter. But the idealistic Emilie does not want to leave MS-One without the hostages.

What happened

in that motel room?

Uh, it was coupon night

and I was trampolining

your wife.

You're a real comedian,

aren't you, Snow?

Well, I guess that's why

they call it the punch line.

You don't like me,

do you?

Don't flatter yourself.

I don't like anybody.

With that attitude

I can see why

nobody likes you.

Oh, come on.

People love me.

Just ask your wife.

What happened in that

room in New York?

What? What was the question?

What happened in that room?




Why do you

never answer your phone?

What the hell's going on?

Listen. You have

to get out, okay?

It's a double cross.

They're coming for you.

You have to get out now!

Yeah. Yeah, okay.

Who was the mystery man

on the phone?

His name was F*ck You.


Yeah, he was Asian.

I don't like

hurting you, Snow.


ls that why

you're having him do it?

I can have Rupert

bludgeon you all night.

I'm being beaten up

by a guy called Rupert?

What happened

with the Colonel?



Hey, buddy.

No, no, no, Frank.

You're gonna be fine.

Don't let them take this.

Yeah, okay.

Stay with me.

Come on,

you're gonna be okay.




Returning fire.

God, I hate heights.



Watch out!




Where are you?

Get to the subway,

Wilson platform 10.

And dump the phone!

They're using it to track you!



We have him now!

Don't move!

And that's when you showed up.

We had the Colonel

under surveillance.

He was selling secrets

about our space programs.

Well, that's interesting

because Frank told me

he was protecting them.

Did he tell you this before

or after you killed him?

Why would I kill him?

He was a friend of mine.

You're right.

That's not what happened.

I saw it with my own eyes.

Running out of jokes, are we?

You setting me up?

ls that what this is?

All we know is that

the Colonel arranged

for a meeting in that motel

and somehow,

you showed up

and killed him. Pop.

You know, this may come

as a surprise to you,

but Frank didn't trust

you guys any more,

so he asked me

to back him up.

He wanted someone

from outside the agency.

You know,

to protect the package.

Who was your backup guy?

Why do I get the feeling

not telling you

is the only thing

keeping him alive?

Hey, hey, hey, hey. Come on.

Come on, guys.

Play nice.

You mind?

No. He's all yours.

Get those off of him, please.

I can't tell if he's stupid

or a really good liar.

Either way, M.S. One

would have been good for him.

Guy's a tool. Nut?

Nah, I'm trying

to give them up.

I was sorry

to hear about Frank.

He was one of

the good guys.

Snow, you gotta

give me something.

Otherwise, I can't help you.

Tell me what I can

do to help, Snow.

Shoot Langral?

Anything else?

Can you pick me up something?

I can. What and where?

I don't know.

Last time I saw it,

it was on a train.


Hey, buddy. Hey!


Tell me who

the backup guy was.

You think

I'm gonna tell you that?

You'll go straight

to your boss.

Well, l guess

this conversation's over.

It's good to see you.

I need a PolCom Tag

and a trace on a name. Mace.

Mr. President.

Scott, come in.

This is just routine.

Won't take two seconds.

Thank you.

They check this damn thing

five times a year.

So, what have we got?

He claims he was set up.

Was he?

I saw him shoot Armstrong

with my own eyes, sir.

What a mess!

So what do you want us
