Blair plays Shawn, a suicidal loan officer at a bank. She is having an affair with the bank vice-president, who is married; after discovering that his wife is pregnant, she goes to the roof to kill herself. In the meantime bank robbers hijack an armored car. When the police arrive to break up the robbery, one of the robbers, Charlie Anders (played by Beesley), takes Shawn hostage.
They make a deal: she will help him escape if he promises to kill her afterwards. As poetic justice, the bank vice-president was a collaborator in the robbery but is arrested.
The film begins at the moment when Shawn and Charlie jump into the water, then jumps back to 24 hours earlier. In the scenes when Charlie and Shawn are hiding out near his boat, you can see the clock moving backwards.
Two detectives, young Agent Reed, played by Lochlyn Munro, and the older Agent McGinley, played by O'Neal Compton, are trying to solve the case. McGinley's wife keeps calling to nag. Reed is extremely knowledgeable about suicide because his sister killed herself.
A large number of filter effects, shutter effects, and jump cuts are used to make long dialogue scenes (particularly between the two cop and between the two lovers) more visually interesting. The audio itself on both is done as a single long take.
Dana Lustig, the director, makes an on screen appearance as Shawn's stepmother.
It was filmed in Canada.
