Chief Warrant Officer Craig Thompson, a United States Army Apache Helicopter pilot, is injured while serving in Afghanistan. Now, back home in Fort Campbell, Kentucky, and confined to a wheelchair, his nightmare continues. Luckily, with the help of a ranking officer, Craig managed to avoid being discharged and became an Apache flight instructor in the simulator.
Out of the blue, Craig gets recruited into a program, under the guise that he will be helping other soldiers who have been injured while serving. He jumps at the opportunity and is suddenly immersed into a world of real-life science-fiction and technology. A world where he is able to walk again. But it is also a world of extreme secrecy. So secret is this project that less than a handful of people outside the project know of its existence. The project experiments are conducted in a top-secret, underground facility. The departments within the facility do not know what the other departments are doing, and most of the personnel involved with the project do not know the true and full extent of the project.
Soon Craig figures out the truth behind the project and its real intent. Yet he understands the reason for the project and is completely onboard. He continues to play his role in the project. Though the project is plagued by failures, progress is being made, and eventually the end is in sight. Distant, still, but within sight.
Craig eventually learns that in a world of secrets, there are always more secrets. And some secrets could cost him everything.
