Welcome to “The Face” – the show where only your appearance counts! It's a big hit on TV – and the President's favorite. He wants all kids to live up to his motto, which includes their looks: “Keep it clean!” No flaws allowed. Kai is psyched when he makes it on the show, while Roxy, whose dad works for them, hates even the concept. When the whole studio is taken hostage, they and a couple of kids escape. The hostage takers' plan: to force the President to step down. They believe he is planning a coup to grab absolute power. Step by step, the kids get closer to the truth as everyone's secrets start to unravel. Who will the kids believe? Which side do they choose? And will they manage to save their parents – and each other?
