When Air Force One is shot down by terrorists leaving the President of the United States William Allan Moore (Samuel L. Jackson) stranded in the wilderness of Finland, there is only one person around who can save him: a 13-year-old boy called Oskari (Onni Tommila).

With the terrorists closing in to capture their own "Big Game" prize while Pentagon officials watch on satellite broadcast—including the Vice President (Victor Garber), the CIA director (Felicity Huffman), and former CIA field operative Herbert (Jim Broadbent), brought in as a consultant—the unlikely duo must team up to escape their hunters.
