The lives of two men, who under normal circumstances might never have even met, are inextricably intertwined in the 12 hours before the tragedy that will unite them both. One man is Will Jansen (Paul Richards), an outwardly respectable individual who storms out of his house after an argument with his wife Carol (Jean Allison)--an argument that seems curiously contrived. The other man is police sergeant Cooper (Douglas Kennedy), whose mounting debts have compelled him to participate in a nocturnal bank robbery. What bizarre twist of fate will force Jansen and Cooper into a fateful--and fatal--confrontation before the night is over? And how could Mrs. Jansen have prevented it?
