A group of violent, armed men have taken control of the island, their true identity unknown. Whatever the motive, they threaten to kill the hostages one by one unless their demands are met after which they might kill everyone anyway.
Communications from the island have been cut off, and Ford knows he has to act. Luckily, the militants do not know Ford's capabilities, or that he is still on the loose. But that situation won t last for long and the clock is ticking.
