Directed by Geoff Burrowes, this film boasts of high-speed chases, tense situations, and heart-stopping moments that leave the audience on the edge of their seat. The story revolves around Charlie Farrow (played by Patrick Dempsey), a law student who witnesses a murder committed by his father (played by Ken Pogue). Shocked and terrified by what he has just seen, Charlie goes into hiding, knowing that his father and his father's accomplices will stop at nothing to eliminate him as a witness. To protect himself, Charlie assumes a new identity and moves to Seattle, where he meets Karen Landers (played by Kelly Preston).

Charlie's life becomes a never-ending nightmare as he is constantly pursued by the people who want him dead. They chase him from Seattle to Canada, where he is relentlessly pursued by his father and others who are after him. As the story unfolds, Charlie and Karen's lives become more and more intertwined, and they begin to fall in love.

The direction of the movie is commendable, with Geoff Burrowes doing an excellent job of keeping the story moving at a brisk pace. He handles the action scenes with great skill, making them exciting and realistic. The movie's cinematography is also noteworthy, with a lot of stunning scenery captured beautifully.
