Plot Summary

11-year-old Mark Sway, torn between what he knows and what he can never tell. A hitman will kill Mark if the boy reveals what he knows. An ambitious federal prosecutor (Jones) will keep the pressure on until Mark tells all. Mark is now a pawn in a deadly game. And his only ally is a courageous attorney (Sarandon) who risks her career – and unexpectedly, her life – for him.
