Russian Separatist rebels have seized control of the Inguri Dam, located in the Caucasus mountains. This radical group has converted the hydropower plant to a chemical weapons facility, concealed at the bottom of the reservoir.
A small team of U.S. special forces is tasked with the mission to infiltrate and destroy the dam. However, they need to remain undetected, making this event look like a catastrophic accident. Word cannot spread that U.S. boots are on the ground in this region because of the potential repercussions of an international incident.
