Bell plays a cop thrown in jail for a crime he didn't commit. Let out for his father's funeral, he escapes and ends up on a hotel ledge threatening to kill himself. Worthington plays his brother, who happens to be planning a heist of a jewelry store across the street while the cop threatens suicide. Mackie will play Bell's ex-partner. Elizabeth Banks plays a hard-living NYPD hostage negotiator who tries to talk him down. The longer they are on the ledge, the more she realizes he might have an ulterior objective.
