They meet and before Nathan can tell Crane who he is, Crane offers him money to kill the secretary, who has threatened to go to the police. Nathan takes an envelop of cash and the woman's photo, tells friends about it, and throws away the envelop. One of the friends, who needs money, retrieves the envelop and sets out to kill the woman. Can Nathan stop the crime? Written by

Bill Pullman (Independence Day and The Last Seduction) plays Callum Crane an on top of the world, thinks he is all that, lawyer wanting to be a judge. Raping someone (Sophie) isn't the way to make judge. Sophie wants Callum to pay for what he did and she won't stop until his life and career is messed up forever. Callum wanting her died won't stop until the job is done. He decides to hire a hit man (Devon Sawa) named Nathan. But the plot gets a twist when Nathan doesn't know how to tell his Dad he is in fact his Dad. Yeah, you guessed it his Dad is Callum Crane the evil rapist. Callum hires his own son to kill someone and he don't even know its his son. Wait more; No one in the movie knows that Sophie the raped victim is also falling for Nathan who is staying with her and her friend. With time ending out for Sophie, Nathan has to pick a side and either stay out or help (Help Sophie or his Dad). Murder, rape, drama, twists and turns even when you think the best part is over there is move and more after that. Follow it closely and don't see anything. Bill Pullman and Devon Sawa team up again after the 1995 Casper hit they are back again together on the screen.
