The SRU is handling a routine VIP protection shift at a fancy downtown hotel. Assigned to the VIP's suite, Ed and the VIP get along like gangbusters; Ed is quickly charmed by the easy-going philanthropist and his beloved wife, in town to give away $5 million at a massive international conference. The protection routine goes awry when a bomb goes off in the hotel kitchen. The SRU soon realizes the explosion was a distraction tactic when they discover the VIP's wife has gone missing. Kidnapping turns to horror when the SRU finds the wife alive, but with a remote-controlled collar bomb locked around her neck - she's a living ransom note. Her husband must go in front of the keynote dinner and confess his past sins to the world - or else she will be detonated in front of him.
