Michael Keaton and Andy Garcia go head to head in this riveting thriller about a cop forced to protect a vicious killer. It's a parent's worst nightmare and a cop's harshest test: Frank Connor (Garcia) is a dedicated officer and devoted father. He'll do anything to find a bone-marrow donor for his dying son, including break into the FBI's computer and solicit the help of a ruthless killer (Keaton). But when the killer escapes from the prison hospital, leaving scorched bodies in his wake, Frank must endanger innocent people or kill the only man who can save his son.
