In the not-too-distant future, a terrorist organization (aligned with the United Nations) disables the power grid of the United States, prompting the government to declare Martial Law. Soon after, all guns are confiscated from civilians and all who dissent are persecuted after being branded as "terrorists". It is up to a small group of patriots to rely on their survival skills and 2nd-Amendment rights to win back America and the freedom they deserve.

Provides examples of the following tropes:
- Action Girl: Kelly, Sam and Penny
- Anachronism Stew: Colonel Kashoid wore a Soviet Army dress uniform as his dress uniform, despite the Soviet Union having collapsed in the 90s. Furthermore, the Chinese UN peacekeepers wielded Type-56 Kalashnikov-style assault rifles, when today, real-life Chinese soldiers are packing QBZ-95 bullpup assault rifles.
- An Axe to Grind: One of the thugs hunting Penny wields an axe. He even grinds his axe against the floor at one point.
- Badass Family: Charlie and his family managed to fend off the UN troops sent to attack them.
- Berserk Button: Lt Bradon Lane cannot seem to restrain himself when his men was threatened by a crisis actor during a training exercise. Afterwards, Col Crane called him out on it.
- Big Bad: Malcolm, the businessman who ordered the EMP set off appeared to be this.
- Big Blackout
- Cold-Blooded Torture: How the United Nations interrogated Timmes for Lt Brandon Lane's location.
- Les Collaborateurs: The United States government as a whole. Certain members have other ideas.
- Colonel Badass: Colonel Crane, being a member of the elite 101st Airborne Division. Also Colonel Kashoid of the Russian Army.
- Cool Old Lady: Betty
- The Empire: The United Nations
- Evil Costume Switch: Downplayed with Colonel Crane who merely swapped out his United States Army Beret for a United Nations Beret.
- Faceless Goons: The two thugs searching for Penny wore green masks to conceal their identities. Trope averted in the case of the UN troops.
- False Flag Operation: The United Nations aligned terror group sets off an EMP as a pretext for martial law.
- Invaded States of America: Courtesy of the United Nations.
- One World Order: What the global elite want to achieve.
- Kill Sat: One that fires an EMP before self-destructing.
- Portmantitle: America + Armageddon
- The premise of foreign forces occupying the United States in wake of an EMP attack bears resemblance to the Red Dawn films.
- A teenage girl was abandoned to her death by her fiance during a moment of crisis. They eventually meet again, only for her to punch him out for his betrayal. Are we talking about Penny and Justin or Anna and Hans?
- Shut Up, Hannibal!: Charlie responded to the Speaker of Congress comparing him with domestic terrorists by calling him a traitor.
- To Be Lawful or Good: Lt Brandon Lane chooses 'good' by refusing to disarm or fire on civilians. On the other hand, Col Crane chooses to side with the government on implementing martial law with no regards for innocent civilians.
- United Nations Is a Superpower: A villainous example.
- Would Hurt a Child: The UN peacekeeper who found Frankie hiding inside a garden shed have no compunction about shooting her dead. Luckily, she manages to shoot him first.
