Synopsis: When the daughter of veteran 911 call center operator Pamela (Mischa Barton), and her estranged husband Jeremy (Luke Goss), a Senior Police Officer, are kidnapped and held hostage, they are left desperate, with no choice but to follow the kidnapper's rules: send messages through dispatch for all police and fire units to scatter to remote locations throughout the city where they are met with chaos. Not knowing who or why, the one thing they do know is if they fail to discreetly collaborate with one another - they will be solely responsible for facilitating the biggest crime in the city's history. Now they must race against the clock to make the choice of their lives - save the city - or save their daughter.

911. What is your emergency?

Fire. The whole house is on fire.

What's the address of the fire?

I can't hear you. 911.

What's the address of the fire?

Sir, what is the address?


Good morning, Atlanta.

There's a beautiful sunrise outside

if you're up at this early hour

lighting up the A skyline

across Midtown and Buckhead.

But what about the south of the city?

Yeah, that's right, today is

the big day, the result of our poll...


It's okay, baby.


- You look funny!

- Well, you have my nose and lips,

so I would probably think

of a better word to describe me.

- You shouldn't wear that.

- Why not?

That shirt with those shoes?

Uh-huh, girlfriend.

Oh, yeah? And where did you go

to fashion school, Missy?

Miss Summers' art class.

Well, I'm not taking fashion tips from

a 10-year old. Now, go grab your bag.

It's the new twelve.

- Where did you find that?

- In the garbage.

Well, it's not yours.

Daddy gave it to you.

Cassie, that was a long time ago, okay?

We're not kids anymore.


So, don't argue with me.

Come on, I'm late.

Okay, but I still need $50.

- For what?

- Our career-day field trip.

What? That's today?


Wait! Cassie, I...


There's my little lady.

- Daddy!

- Get over here. Come on.

- How you been?

- Good.

- You got a new outfit?

- Yeah.

- Pretty. Look at you.

- Thank you.

I think waiting a week

to see you is too much.

Morning, Pam.

- Hey, Howard.

- Morning, Pammie.

Oh, Dad, can you help me

with my homework?

You know I can.

- You were supposed to finish that yourself!

- Oh, come on, Pam!

Hey, want to go see uncle Howard?

- Yeah.

- Go on, I'll be right there.

- Hey, Pam.

- What is it, Jeremy?

I was just gonna say you look

beautiful today, that's all.

I'm in a rush. What do you want?

The car is in both of our names.

It's affecting the credit, that's all.

- I'll take care of it.

- I didn't mean it like that, okay?

- If you need help, I can...

- We're not married.

- We're not divorced either.

- Not yet.

I think I've said "Sorry" enough,

don't you?

- You left our daughter alone in the house.

- I know.

And for what? So you could take a call?

Hey, Pam, it's been a year, okay?

When are you gonna let it go?

I look forward to seeing you

and Cassie, you know that.

How many times I got to say I'm sorry

if you just stop being crazy-mad at me?

I don't know. How many whiskey sours

does it take to forget?

Nice, Pam.

You, know, I've been sober

for five months. I'm trying, okay?

We have a couple of issues to discuss, so

let's go ahead and get them out of the way.

First, we need to keep

our workplace clean.

Second shift has been complaining

about trash left on our workstations.

- Some of that shit is from third shift.

- Well, be that as it may...

Pamela, nice of you to join us.

Secondly, and perhaps more importantly,

the state is making major cuts

to our staff and benefits,

so I'll be taking over for Richard

for a bit while he is out with the flu.

He'll post the details next week

when he gets back.

So, who got axed?

I'm not privileged

to release that information.

Don't worry, sweetie,

you've only been here two years.


They're firing employees

with longer tenure and more benefits

for those newer, cheaper workers.

I don't make any decisions.

That's Richard's call.

He and upper management in both

the state police and fire departments

are taking a 40% cut

of their retirement benefits,

so it's not just us who are affected.

Let's just focus on the task at hand

and get to our workstations.

Pamela, could I see you
