The movie, directed by Dan Bradley, tells the story of a town in Washington State that awakens to the surreal sight of foreign paratroopers dropping from the sky as the town becomes the initial target of a U.S. invasion. Determined to fight back, a group of young patriots seek refuge in the surrounding woods, training and reorganizing themselves into a small band of guerilla fighters. Inspired by their high school mascot, they call themselves The Wolverines as they band together to protect one another, liberate their town from its captors, and take back their freedom.
