"Academy Award® winner Robert DeNiro and Oscar® nominee Edward North deliver powerful performances as a seasoned corrections official and a scheming inmate who's lives become dangerously intertwined in this thriller. Jack Mabrey (De Niro), parole officer days away from retirement, is asked to review the case of Gerald “Stone” Creeson (Norton), in prison for arson. Now eligible for early release, Stone needs to convince Jack he has reformed, but his attempts to influence the older man’s decision with his wife Lucetta (Milla Jovovich) have profound and unexpected effects on them both. This tale of passion betrayal and corruption skillfully weaves together the parallel journeys of two men grappling with dark impulses, as the line between lawman and lawbreaker becomes precariously thin."
