But when something he’s discovered gets his entire office killed, leaving Joe as the only survivor and forcing him to go on the run, the theoretical reservations he’s harbored turn into all-too-real moral dilemmas. Under pressure, Joe will be forced to redefine who he is and what he’s capable of in order to discover the truth and to stop a plot that threatens the lives of millions. Starring Max Irons, William Hurt, Leem Lubany, with Mira Sorvino and Bob Balaban and special guest star Brendan Fraser.
