Young Nathan Corrigan has just been released from prison, he who was serving a sentence for auto theft. He is basically a good but misguided person, due in part to the company he keeps, namely the friends he's known since high school and his partners in crime, Leo and Dennis, and feeling unloved or unaccepted by his preacher father, Martin Corrigan. The feeling associated with that latter sentiment is strengthened when his mother, Maddy Corrigan, confesses to him that Martin is not his biological father, that person being who was then a law student named Callum Crane with who she had a one time liaison and who she never told about the pregnancy. Nathan decides to search for Callum. Meanwhile, Callum is now married and a high powered lawyer, whose colleagues in the know consider amoral and devious. Just before he is appointed a federal judge, Callum rapes Sophie Lennon, a secretary new to the law firm where he works. Because of that situation, Callum has Sophie fired. Feeling otherwise...

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.
