Psychological thriller by Scottish director Gillie MacKinnon, starring Jonny Lee Miller as Denis, a young pilot with a happy life: a beautiful home, a loving wife expecting their first baby and plenty of money. But his life is shattered when escaped convict Ricky Barnes (Andy Serkis) breaks into his home one night and kills his pregnant wife. Miraculously, the baby survives, but Denis is too distraught to look after it, leaving its care to his cousin Christine (Jodhi May). Denis embarks on an elaborate plan of revenge against the man who has wrecked his life, involving faking his own death and mimicking his enemy. But his plan backfires and he ends up locked into a high security prison alongside his nemesis.
