You can only push an innocent man so far

Ein riskanter Plan

Nick Cassidy war einst ein erfolgreicher Cop mit einem nahezu perfekten Leben. Doch plötzlich findet er sich im Gefängnis wieder, für ein Verbrechen, das er nicht begangen hat. Wie weit kann ein Mann gehen, um seine eigene Unschuld zu beweisen? Völlig verzweifelt nutzt er die erstbeste Gelegenheit, die sich ihm bietet, zur Flucht und steigt mit einem ausgeklügelten Plan im Kopf auf den Fenstersims eines Hochhauses.

Dos au mur
  • a.k.a. Dos au mur

Ancien flic condamné à la prison pour un vol dont il se dit innocent, Nick Cassidy a réussi à s’évader. Dans un célèbre hôtel de New York, il monte jusqu’à l’un des derniers étages et enjambe la fenêtre. Le voilà dehors, sur la corniche, au bord du vide… Lydia Mercer, négociatrice de la police, est chargée d’essayer de le convaincre de ne pas sauter. Plus la jeune femme tente de dénouer cette situation périlleuse, plus elle prend conscience que Cassidy pourrait bien avoir un autre objectif… Son geste a peut-être un rapport avec le mystérieux projet sur lequel travaille son frère. Pendant que l’ex-flic est au bord du vide et attire l’attention de toute la ville, beaucoup de choses se trament et trop de gens semblent s’intéresser à son cas. Les pièces du puzzle vont se révéler peu à peu, au risque de faire tomber beaucoup plus qu’un seul homme…

Nick Cassidy è un ex poliziotto di New York evaso dalla prigione in cui scontava una lunga pena per aver rubato e poi rivenduto un prezioso diamante appartenente a un potente e avido uomo d'affari. Ora Nick si trova sul cornicione di uno dei piani più alti del Roosevelt Hotel, a 78 metri dal suolo, proclama la propria innocenza e minaccia di buttarsi di sotto. Paralizzato il traffico e attirata l'attenzione dei media, Nick pretende la presenza della detective Lydia Spencer, nota all'intera nazione per aver tentato senza successo di evitare un suicidio qualche tempo prima. Ciò che la donna cerca di capire è: Nick vuole davvero suicidarsi o ha un altro fine?
