Storyline

Using charts and medical history, actuary Wes Riemann can statistically predict how many years someone has to live. But it's only a prediction. When he discovers the life insurance firm he works for has been canceling policies weeks, sometimes days before the policy holder dies in order to avoid costly payouts, he comes to grip with the impossible - that somehow, they know the exact date when someone will die. In order to prevent the firm from destroying anymore lives, including his own, Wes will risk it all to discover an unbelievable secret.

If you like to see things blow up then this movie is not for you. But if you are a mystery film lover whom enjoys "peeling the onion layers" of clues away with the protagonist Wes Riemann (lead by the very competent actor Dan McGlughlin) then you are really going to enjoy the unique plot and twists of Assumption of Risk. Shot in a style reminiscent of the great suspense films of the 70s, director Mark Kochanowicz, explores the manipulation of life and death by a greedy corporation lead by Brensen Tol (Bill Chemerka). "The Wire" alumni actors, Brian Anthony Wilson, Frankie Faison and Christopher Mann round out the lead cast in this intriguing independent film.
