Movie Info

In this thriller, a Chicago cabbie diagnosed with terminal cancer reconsiders a popular author's offer to pay him a fortune in exchange for murdering a drug dealer. Taxi driver Mitch Lawrence's (Rob Lowe) main reason for performing the hit is to ensure that his beloved pregnant wife does not suffer poverty after his death. After killing the drug lord, he finds that the pain from his stomach cancer miraculously disappears. Unfortunately, the supposedly-dead drug dealer turns up very much alive, and suddenly Mitch finds himself entangled in a deadly game.more
