When the daughter of a psychiatrist is kidnapped, he's horrified to discover that the abductors' demand is that he break through to a post traumatic stress disorder suffering young woman who knows a secret...
High powered lawyer Claire Kubik finds her world turned upside down when her husband, who has been living under a false name, is arrested by military police and placed on trial for the murder of villagers while he was in the Marines.
A group of thieves steal a rare gem, but in the process, two of the men double cross the leader of the thieving group, Patrick, and take off with the precious stone. Ten years later, prominent psychiatrist Nathan Conrad is invited to examine a disturbed young woman named Elisabeth. Patrick immediately kidnaps Nathan's daughter, forcing Nathan to attempt to get Elisabeth to reveal a secret number which will ultimately lead Patrick to the whereabouts of the precious gem that has eluded him.

The Canal Street subway station was actually filmed in Toronto's "Bay Lower" unused subway station. $150,000 was spent on set dressing alone. The TTC (Toronto Transit Commission) was so impressed with the New York conversion that they actually requested the set to be left up after filming was completed to attract future filming revenue. The set remained for about three weeks until TTC fire inspectors deemed the set a hazard (steel girders, signs and benches were plastic and wood), so the set was torn down and disposed of. See more »
The 2s Elisabeth writes on the glass with her finger are a different shape than the ones Dr. Conrad points out after they've dug up the wrong grave. His point was that she was writing it backward, but her 2s would not have looked like 5s in reverse. See more »
Here's another interesting kidnap story. Sean Bean always plays a
believable villain and Michael Douglas usually plays roles that keep
the audience's attention....so the almost- two hours go by pretty
quickly. The whole cast, actually, pretty good with no one person
The story loses points because the ending goes on too long and has the
standard villain-holds-the-gun-and-doesn't shoot-too long cliché which
drives critics, me included crazy. That, and a bit too many f-words in
here by the female cop (Jennifer Esposito) which simply aren't
necessary, and a few other holes all reduce this from a sure 9-star to
an "8.....but don't misunderstand: it's worth a look.
