(mbc.net) On the night of her eighth birthday, Chelsea (Daryl Hannah) is traumatized by the sight of her famous artist father and all his works of art going up in flames. Twenty years later Chelsea is accused of stealing one of her father’s paintings from a Manhattan art dealer named Victor Taft (Terence Stamp). Chelsea’s lawyer Laura Kelly tries to turn around the assistant district attorney prosecuting the case against her, Tom Logan (Robert Redford), believing that if he knew all the facts he would help them and exonerate Chelsea.

Police Detective Cavanaugh (Brian Dennehy) uncovers evidence that the paintings that were insured in millions, and presumed lost in the fire, are still in existence. This means that Taft was in on an insurance fraud scheme, if not the murder of Chelsea’s father as well.

Problem is- after dropping all charges, Taft shows up dead, and with Chelsea, the prime suspect, discovered in Logan’s bed, this throws his chances of becoming the next District Attorney of New York City…
