JJ is a known name in Hollywood. Her PR company ‘Bright Lights’ are known for being able to get high profile celebrities out of some very sticky situations. But sometimes even she is not enough to help those who really need it...
When she is out for lunch at a prestigious Hollywood restaurant, looking over one of her new clients, a suspected suicide bomber holds the restaurants clientele hostage. Terrified they do exactly as he asks and no one alerts the police.

But this isn’t a random attack – this is cold calculated murder and the perpetrator is no stranger to killing...
But what exactly is their motive?
As the madman begins bargaining with the hostages and killing those he sees fit one by one, the survivors release is reliant upon the hostage negotiator getting the info she needs from the TRN news channel.
But can she get the answers she so desperately needs before they all run out of time and die at the hands of the mad person holding them.
One things for sure, Hollywood may never be the same again.
