In Triggers the American President is rushed to hospital after an assassination attempt on his life.
In that same hospital, there is an experiment underway to test a device that can erase traumatic memories.
During the experiment and while efforts are being made to save the President’s life, another attack detonates a bomb and cuts all power to the hospital.
The experiment goes horribly awry and people that are in close proximity to where the experiment was taking place start swapping memories.
Now the race is on to find out who has accessed the President’s memory and risked National Security.
