Product Description:

After his alternate-fuel research lab blows up, a brilliant young scientist (Keanu Reeves) is wrongly pegged as the saboteur in this action-thriller from the director of THE FUGITIVE. Teaming up with a beautiful physicist (Rachel Weisz), the scruffy techie struggles to evade federal agents and uncover the conspiracy behind the crime.

Plot Synopsis:

Eddie and Lily are part of a research team on the verge of inventing a process that transforms water into energy. One night, Eddie goes to the lab and discovers that his boss has been killed -- and that the plant is about to explode. Narrowly escaping the blast, Eddie realizes he and Lily are marked for death, but he doesn't know by whom...
The young scientists flee, but both good AND bad guys pursue them throughout Chicago. At the same time, they desperately try to figure out who wants to stop their project, and why. But the couple has to be very careful, because one false move could be their last.
