(mbc.net) Detective Will Dormer (Al Pacino) and his partner Hap Eckhart (Martin Donovan), are under investigation for criminal misconduct.  Internal Affairs has offered Eckhart immunity if he willfully testifies against Dormer, a proposition he is planning to accept. 

In the present, Dormer and Eckhart are searching for a murder suspect in Alaska.  While chasing the suspect following a stakeout, Dormer accidentally shoots his partner; convinced that his superiors would believe it was intentional, Will plants evidence to frame their original suspect.  After a few days, however, that decision will come back to haunt him. The murderer Walter Finch (Robin Williams) somehow has evidence of Dormer shooting his partner, and so starts blackmailing him...
