In his first action thriller, Evans stars as a guy simply caught in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Ryan receives a desperate phonecall from a panicked woman (Kim Basinger) telling him she has been held hostage and he needs to go to the police before her son is also taken.

Macho Man? An ordinary Joe who saves the day. He steps up to the mark in his pursuit of more serious leading roles.
