Despite meticulously planning his final heist at a Virginia estate, expert at disguise and career criminal Luther Whitney (Eastwood) gets the surprise of his life when he discovers President Alan Richmond (Gene Hackman) engaged in an extra-marital affair that leaves a woman shot dead. The President's Chief of Staff (Judy Davis) initiates a cover-up implicating Luther as the killer. But enterprising homicide detective Seth Frank (Ed Harris) knows there's more to this mystery. Now, should Luther run ... or stay to fight a conspiracy led by the White House?
