“This intelligence thriller…is charged with brilliance.”

– Desson Thomson, The Washington Post

FBI. CIA. Secret Service. Black Ops. Robert Scott is all of these. And none of these. His newest assignment: find the possibly kidnapped daughter of a high government official before the story leaks.

To that assignment, writer/director David Mamet adds suspense, bold twists, his trademark flair for dialogue and superb ensemble acting to a film “that stands with the best work he’s done” (Christian Science Monitor). Val Kilmer plays Scott, the off-the-books special agent deep undercover and deeper in danger. Fall in step with Scott and let the story reveal itself as he lives it. And if he survives it. Expect the unexpected.
