Information gathered by the CIA suggests that Russia has fired a weapon of mass destruction at the US. Unfortunately the US don't know when or exactly where the 'bomb' will go off because Russia haven't aimed a missile at the US; they have deflected a near Earth asteroid onto a collision course with North America. A group of top astronomers have just five days to identify the asteroid and determine a plan to avert disaster before the President will have no option but to order a massive retaliatory nuclear strike against Russia.
