Overview
Hoofdrolspelers Julia Roberts en Denzel Washington en regisseur Alan J. Pakula ('Presumed Innocent') brengen John Grisham's bestseller tot leven in deze topthriller. Twee rechters van het Hooggerechtshof zijn vermoord en een studente rechten (Roberts) gaat op eigen houtje op onderzoek uit. Haar vermoedens onderbouwt ze met een voorbereidend, speculatief dossier dat tot op de hoogste regeringsniveau's schokgolven veroorzaakt. Samen met een vastbesloten onderzoeksjournalist (Washington) besluit ze haar ontdekkingen publiek te maken - als ze er eerst in slagen om te overleven. De race is begonnen, maar zij zijn geen gewone deelnemers. Ze zijn bewegende doelwitten.
