Overview
"Billy Crudup and Jennifer Connelly give passionate performances" raves Leonard Maltin of 'Playboy Magazine,' about this story of love, ambition, and the price of power. Filmmaker Keith Gordon delivers a psychological mystery of haunting proportions. When one man's 70's idealism confronts his 80's aspirations, he begins an emotional roller coaster that brings ghosts back to life and asks the ultimate question: Does love conquer all, even death?
