Callum Crane (Bill Pullman) is a high-powered lawyer on the verge of becoming a judge, fuelled by alcohol inspired lust, he commits an act that will have devastating consequences.
He assaults his pretty new legal assistant Sophie (Gabrielle Anwar). She subsequently threatens to expose him, to destroy both his career and his fragile relationship with his wife Nathalie (Joanne Whalley).
In the meantime, Nathan (Devon Sawa), a young petty criminal, discovers that Crane is his real father and decides to find him. By a strange twist of fate, Nathan is befriended by Sophie's roommate, Tanya (Angela Featherstone), after encountering her near Crane's office.
Finally, late one night, Nathan comes face to face with his father after he thwarts some hoodlums about to break into Crane's car. With no idea of his rescuer's true identity, Crane desperately offers Nathan money to kill the young woman who is about to wreak havoc on his life. The dramatic and complex chain of events unleashed by this act lead to Sophie's death. Although he is innocent, Nathan finds himself an accused killer and the subject of an enormous manhunt.
Ultimately Nathan confronts Crane with his paternity and later, during a terrifyingly dramatic confrontation, forces him into a full confession. In attempting to save both his son and himself, Crane subsequently concocts an intricate scheme that is destined both to fail and to succeed as fate deals the final ironic hand.
