Compelled to commit a murder to repay a debt to the man in prison who kept him alive, ex-convict Charlie Rankin experiences a crisis of conscience after he falls for a woman who sees the good inside him.
"Charlie Rankin (Stephen Dorff) is out of prison, but not out of trouble. Indebted to the man who saved his life behind bars (Willem Dafoe), Charlie must now carry out a murder to settle the score. But things start to change for Charlie when he meets Florence (Michelle Monaghan), a mysterious and beautiful lost soul who sees the good hidden beneath his tough exterior. When the hit goes bad, it's Charlie's life that is on the line, and he'll have to figure out how to settle his debts – and keep Florence out of danger – before his past catches up to him."
