Liberty and Victor Wallace own one of the largest gun manufactures of the U.S. As Liberty is on the verge of meeting her lover in downtown L.A., her cell phone rings. The caller is a man named Joe. Joe proves to Liberty that he's taking aim at her with his rifle and forces her to cuff herself at a hot-dog stand in the middle of a square. Furthermore, Joe tells her that a bomb hidden in the stand will explode if she tries to alert the people passing by.

Joe explains to Liberty that his daughter has been killed with a gun manufactured by her society and that he wants revenge. He kills a policeman and, soon, the square is surrounded by the swat team and the journalists. Joe would like Liberty to make a public statement and to name the politicians bribed by her company in front of the cameras. Meanwhile, Liberty has also become a target for the C.I.A. who doesn't want her to talk.
