"...A barnstorming performance by Dennis Quaid..."
A washed-up writer/college professor discovers one day that someone has slipped him a poison, leaving him with only 48 hours to live. He spends his final days searching for his murderer. A remake of the classic film noir.
Sleepwalking through the academia, an alcoholic professor spends more time drinking than grading papers or writing new novels. The once promising writer gets a wake up call when he discovers he has only a few days to live after being poisoned. With a perky co-ed, he is driven to find his killer.
