Abstract:

"The year is 1938. Cash (Wilder) is a star Broadway director who earned his nickname by directing a string of box-office hits. When Cash's wife is brutally murdered, he retreats back to the safer environs of Stamford, Connecticut, and starts his own community theater but just as he begins to heal from the tragedy of his wife's death, another murder shakes his world when a fellow businessman is found dead. Stamford police lieutenant Tony Rossini (Mike Starr) calls on his old friend Cash for help. Cash, putting his insights into character motivation and human psychology to the ultimate test, becomes drawn further and further into a world of mystery and mayhem where everyone in town is a suspect. As he is forced to come to terms with the tragic events of his own past, he journeys on a trail of violence that will place his own life in jeopardy"--Box.
