A Score to Settle

After being paid-off to take a murder rap, Frank (Nicolas Cage) receives an unexpected life sentence and spends the next two decades locked behind bars festering a need for revenge. When he is given a diagnosis of a terminal illness he is released from prison to live out his final days as a free man. Keeping his condition a secret, Frank reunites with his estranged son Joey (Noah Le Gros). Their reunion is awkward because his son harbors resentment about being abandoned as a child. Frank tries to heal their relationship and they bond over expensive shopping trips and dinners, which are well beyond any legitimate means. Joey recognizes these extravagances are tied to Frank’s past and knows his father hasn’t changed. With Joey threating to leave, Frank is torn by the need to repair his relationship with his son and his need to exact vengeance against those who wronged him. When he discovers a truth withheld from him long ago, he races furiously against the ticking clock of his life, trying to expose lies from the past before it is too late. The choice between family, friendship, love and hate is no longer as clear as he once thought and Frank is forced to face secrets he has spent years avoiding.
