Hit man stalks woman under death contract
21 February 2000 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

A woman from Idaho, diagnosed terminally ill, comes to San Francisco to live the remaining months of her life. While there she seeks a second opinion and learns that she is not dying after all. Things should be rosy, only while under the impression that she was near death, she put out a death contract on herself. After hearing the doctor's good news she then goes to the police for help to stop the unknown killer from fulfilling his end of the bargain. Average cop yarn.
