World War III erupts in the Northern Pacific with the US being landed a huge blow by the Soviets. The West Coast is invaded, the Military Command in Colorado and the Government in Washington destroyed. The remnants of the US Pacific Fleet are ordered to regroup in the South Pacific, and rally their allies. Sydney, Australia is attacked and the East Coast of Australia is blockaded by Soviet Submarines, making the port of Auckland, New Zealand the only viable stop to regroup, re-arm and refuel. We follow Michael Whareaitu, a junior naval officer in the Royal New Zealand Navy. Claire Whareaitu, the first female fighter pilot in the Royal New Zealand Air Force. Gary Brewer, a tank commander in the Australian Army and, William Oliver, the USMC detachment commander aboard the USS Carl Vinson. These four will fight for their land and their survival, and the turning point of this new war may just be Auckland, New Zealand.
