Golden Globe winner Julian McMahon of NIP/TUCK stars as arrogant Hollywood director Derek Plato, who has announced that his next film will be a violent prison drama. But while scouting locations alone in an abandoned penitentiary, Plato is taken hostage by a sadistic jailer (Elias Koteas of THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT) and ZODIAC) and held captive on death row. Now Derek is faced with two desperate choices: Answer a series of brutally personal questions on camera, or be strapped into the electric chair. Even if Plato's darkest secrets can be unlocked, who - or what - is behind his cruel countdown to execution? Kim Raver (THIRD WATCH, 24), Tom Guiry (MYSTIC RIVER, BLACK HAWK DOWN), Rocky Carroll (NCIS) and Dagmara Dominczyk co-star in this intense psychological thriller with a final killer twist.
