Hoffman is Max. a local TV reporter taken hostage with schoolchildren when Sam locks down the museum. It is a desperate move for Sam, a career move for Max. He is on the inside of a live exclusive. Now he must give Sam's story a heroic spin, keep a cynical network anchor (Alan Alda) at bay, and keep America watching. As Max pulls the strings, the stakes grow higher, darker, madder.
