Natasha Richardson plays a social worker whose newest client 11 (Rutger Hauer) has been recently paroled for the murder of his pregnant wife. Richardson finds herself increasingly intrigued with this troubled man and the question of his guilt.

It's a crafty mystery with some real sparks in the verbal sparring between Richardson and Hauer. A strong script and cast put this movie a cut above any of the films to air on USA this year. Clancy Brown costars.
