Seconds later, a nearby payphone is ringing. Assuming it might be Julie, he picks it up and hear a frantic voice on the other end. The news that he hears is atonishing, as a soldier tells him that the United States will be blown in pieces by a nuclear bomb within one hour. Afterwards a sound of a gunfire is heard in the background and someone else tells Harry to ignore the call.At this point, Harry has no clue to whether or not to take the call as a joke. His mind wanders into thousand of things, it can be possible that the warning is the truth, if so, how can he save his country within one hour? How can he tell so many folks that a bomb will dimnish their country without anyone brushing it off as nonsense?

The people he does talk about this matter is a drunk, another a drag queen and a employee at the coffee shop. Harry and the clerk try to come up with a escape plan-using a helicopter to board themselves onto to get out the country. But more importantly, Harry must find Julie first as he does not want his love in harm's way.
