Michael Rodriquez comes home from 2 tours of combat duty to find his hometown on the brink of self-destruction. A corrupt politician has sold out his small farming town to an evil corporation (Poseidon) controlling most of the county, and the states water. The starving community is collapsing, while the corporation buys up their land. The political shield behind Poseidon's death grip on water is a small, endangered fish. Poseidon uses the fish to leverage the congressional consent to construct 3 brand new dams. This only motivates a beautiful biologist by the name of Meghan Conner's to find a way to save the fish and transplant them, removing them from the endangered species list and taking away Poseidon's powers.
