Brash Special Forces Intelligence Officer Thomas Devoe (Clooney) teams up with anti-smuggling official Dr. Julia Kelly (Kidman) to track down runaway nuclear bombs which have fallen into the dastardly hands of a Yugoslavian terrorist determined to draw attention to the slaughter in his former homeland by nuking midtown Manhattan. Clooney makes another run at action stardom, this time under the direction of his "ER" producer, Leder. Based on the writings of investigative journalists Andrew and Leslie Cockburn.
