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.

User Reviews

 
Captured my attention completely!
4 April 2014 | by andrea_havensSee all my reviews

The entire composition of this film was successfully assembled to be very strong. All facets coordinated harmoniously - a tough thing to achieve. Scenes, music, acting, stunts, storyline, editing and all are top quality with plenty of variety and the result is an intensely riveting movie with even a few perfect twists of humor worked in. I especially enjoyed the distinctly different personae of the lead characters, and each of them has a lot of depth, making them feel real. I can relate to each of them. Also surprising is the level of quality achieved on a low budget. We are looking forward to watching it again to better pick up some of the intriguing subtleties, too.
