(mbc.net) As the Mayor of Salamanca introduces the US president (William Hurt) who steps up to the podium, shots ring out. The president is hit. As chaos ensues two Secret Service agents are rushing to cover all the bases; Thomas Barnes (Dennis Quaid) returning from sick leave, and Kent Taylor (Matthew Fox). In the meantime, another vantage point belongs to GNN producer Rex Brooks (Sigourney Weaver) who is controlling the online cameras from a mobile production unit in a nearby truck. Vantage point number 3 belongs to Enrique (Eduardo Noriega), a Spanish cop assigned to protect the Mayor of Salamanca.  Howard Lewis (Forest Whitaker) and his camcorder present the 4th vantage point of the events.

Another two vantage points remain to complete the true story of the events that took place that afternoon, yet you'll have to watch the film to get them all and the truth of what really happened.
