Alice Bowman is world-travelled and savvy but nothing could prepare her for this. Rebels in a politically volatile Latin American country have kidnapped her husband for ransom. The asking price: $3 million.
Meg Ryan plays Alice and Russell Crowe is Terry Thorne, the hostage retrieval expert who becomes Alice's only hope in navigating a high-stakes game where terrorists value money over life. Taylor Hackford directs, steadily tightening the emotional vice as Terry and Alice try to smoke out the perpetrators and rescue Alice's husband (David Morse) and as both confront the gnawing awareness that they're attracted to each other.
