ORIGINAL PERI A man is torn between love for his family and his desire for justice when he takes a stand against crime. Aidan Quinn plays an average guy who, with others, witnesses a brutal organized crime murder. He becomes the only witness willing to testify, but in doing so, he endangers the lives of his wife, his son—and himself. Brian Dennehy plays the high-powered attorney who will do anything—including putting his witness in jail—to assure getting his testimony. (AL,V) 1:43.
