Paul Haggis writes and directs this American remake of the 2008 French crime thriller 'Anything for Her'. Literature professor John Brennan (Russell Crowe) and his wife Lara (Elizabeth Banks) have a good life, a happy marriage and an adored three-year-old son. But the idyll is shattered when Lara is arrested for a murder she insists she did not commit. For the first three years of her sentence, John struggles to keep his career and family together while pursuing every possible avenue available to him to prove Lara's innocence. When their final appeal is rejected and Lara becomes suicidal, John decides to take the law into his own hands.
