Morgan Freeman and Gene Hackman star in this American drama set in Puerto Rico. Harry Hearst (Hackman) is a rich and successful lawyer who discovers the body of a young girl and is consequently asked by police chief Victor Benezet (Freeman) to help with his enquiries. However, Hearst soon finds himself coming under suspicion from Benezet and Detective Owen (Thomas Jane). As they scrutinise his private life further, they speak with his wife Chantal (Monica Bellucci), who is almost 30 years his junior, and learn that their marriage is far from ideal. Soon a number of startling discoveries conspire to make Hearst the prime suspect in the murder case.
