Keeping a murderer alive - it goes against everything he stands for. He personifies evil. A multiple murderer and textbook sociopath, Peter McCabe (Michael Keaton - Batman) is a killer of chilling proportions and the last person any one would want to spare from the gas chambers. However, respected cop, Frank Connor (Andy Garcia - The Untouchables), is desperate. His son, Matt, needs a bone marrow transplant to live and Peter McCabe is the perfect genetic match. McCabe agrees to the procedure but when he escapes the hospital before the transplant is performed, Connor embarks on a life or death search to find him. However, while Connor is desperate to keep McCabe alive, the FBI is out to kill him and, with McCabe leaving a trail of maimed and murdered victims in his wake, everyone but Connor is out to make sure this fugitive comes back dead.
