A man being held hostage discovers others besides his captors have it in for him in this taut thriller. Ethan Grover (Dabney Coleman) is a successful businessman who has made more than his share of enemies. His wife, Judy (Linda Smith), has been having an affair with Allan (Stewart Bick), one of Ethan's partners who has been embezzling money from the firm. Syd (Michael Rudder), Ethan's accountant, has been in cahoots with Allan, investing in a dubious real estate venture. And Alex (Brett Watson), Judy's son from an earlier marriage, is a drug addict who has been draining his stepfather's bank account to feed his habit. So when Ethan is kidnapped and held for a two-million-dollar ransom, his immediate family and closest business associates don't immediately come to his aid. Ethan's loyal secretary, Sandra (Dorothee Berryman), tries to untangle the web of deceit and betrayal that has enveloped him while Ethan tries to win the friendship of his kidnappers.
