This re-make of the 1949 film noir classic stars Dennis Quaid as Dexter Cornell, an English professor who finds himself the victim of a slow-acting poison, and tries to track down his killer before his time runs out. Meg Ryan plays an adoring student who aids him in his search, but is not herself above suspicion. Cornell has just 24 hours to find an antidote, before he suffers an untimely and painful demise.
