Three astronauts, Tim Choate (The First Time, Ghost Story), Kate Lynch (Meatballs), John Walsch (Body Parts), in a secret spaceship lose all contact with the ground and observe what appears to be a nuclear exchange between the USA and Russia, basically a WW III. Two months later, the spacecraft’s guidance system is mysteriously reprogrammed, forcing the crew’s return to a vastly changed Earth. The spacecraft lands considerably off-course, on a beach in eastern Nova Scotia, Canada and they encounter “terminals” – humans crazed by disease. In the middle of the night, Howe ventures out in search of help and a way to escape. He soon encounters Vinny (Maury Chaykin - Twins, War Games, Highpoint), a survivalist who has fortified his house with barbed wire and booby-traps. Vinny effectively saves him from the “terminals”, and makes him his prisoner. Eventually, Vinny, fellow survivor J.J. (Lenore Zann - Visiting Hours, Happy Birthday to Me, American Nightmare, Murder by Phone), and Howe are captured, and taken in chains to a makeshift fortress built out of junk. In order to survive, the crew must escape to the radiation-free zones while avoiding the cannibal “terminals” and a sadistic military-school student-turned-despotic ruler. And will any of them be able to escape before a malfunctioning nuclear warhead explodes in sixty hours? Hang on tight, DEF-CON 4 is a sci-fi survival thriller that will leave you breathless.
