The film centers on Pacino's character, a college professor and FBI psychologist who is told he will be killed in 88 minutes.

Leelee Sobieski will play one of Pacino's students, Neal McDonough is a death row inmate who may have something to do with the plot and Alicia Witt is Pacino's teaching assistant and much younger lover.
