Synopsis by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
In the made-for-cable thriller The Wrong Man, an American sailor (Kevin Anderson) is framed for the murder of a Mexican smuggler. The sailor escapes the police by hooking up with a weird couple (John Lithgow and Rosanna Arquette), who drag him into a series of sordid, dangerous affairs. Eventually, the wife falls for the sailor, which leads to even more danger for the fugitive.
