But when you're backed into a corner and you have nowhere else to go, sometimes out… or more like down, is the only option. That's how Nick Cassidy (Worthington) finds himself on the window ledge of a skyscraper in New York City.
He's ready to die, or so he says he is, for being wrongfully framed for the theft of a $40 million diamond.
Whether Nick did the job or not doesn't seem to be relevant to Lydia Mercer (played by Elizabeth Banks from The 40-Year-Old Virgin and 30 Rock fame). She's the police psychologist assigned to try to talk this lunatic out of jumping to his death.
At first, she thinks this job is a text book case, but the more she talks to this frantic man standing on the ledge of a very tall building, the more she starts to understand he might not be trying to commit suicide at all. Our svelte Perseus has more than a simple plan up his sleeve. With this help of his brother, played by Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot, The Adventures of Tintin), Nick might be able to prove his innocence.
