On March 11, 2005, Brian Nichols escapes from the Fulton County courthouse in Atlanta, during his trial involving a rape case. In the process of the escape he murders the judge presiding over his trial, Rowland Barnes, as well as court reporter Julie Brandau. He also shoots Sergeant Hoyt Teasley while escaping from the courthouse, and then later kills ICE Special Agent David G. Wilhelm, who was off-duty at his home. Nichols becomes the subject of a citywide manhunt. His frantic escape brings him to the apartment of Ashley Smith, a single mother and recovering methamphetamine addict, whom he holds hostage. Smith gets through the time by being inspired by Rick Warren's best-selling book The Purpose Driven Life while Nichols searches for redemption. As she reads aloud, Smith and her would-be killer come to a crossroads..

Intense, Suspenseful, Thrilling! A must see performance by David and Kate!
The movie is a must see. Very well put together. The scenes are intense and suspenseful. The movie kept me wondering what would be the outcome. Based on a true story it had moments that I wondered, how can any good come out of the tragedy in these persons lives, and then as the movie continued the inspiration came forward as a glimmer of humanity that gives light to redemption and hope. The lead actors were phenomenal. I recommend parents take their teenage children (13 and up) to see this movie and open up the discussion of the healing power of redemption in any circumstance. Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! Don't let a review from someone who has not seen it deceive you. This movie holds its own all the way to the end. It alienates no one and speaks to everyone.
