In a moment the world has forever changed. Millions of people have suddenly vanished off the face of the earth and chaos remains. One man emerges from the madness as a brave and caring leader. His name is Nicolae Carpathia (Gordon Currie) and to the ravaged world he represents peace, order, and hope. However, ancient biblical prophecies warn about such a time, and warn about such a man. Buck Williams, (Kirk Cameron) a world-renowned journalist, knows Nicolae's true identity: he is the Antichrist. Quickly, Buck and a determined group of survivors known as the TRIBULATION FORCE realize that Nicolae's reign begins the seven-year countdown to the apocalypse. Together they swear to do anything to expose the Antichrist for the monster that he is. But the world is now a different and dangerous place. Martial law is in effect. Humanity's heart grows cold. Nicolae controls every world leader and anyone opposing him is seen as an enemy of humanity - and marked for death.
