Man on a Ledge

Set in New York City, “Man on a Ledge” tells the story of Nick Cassidy (Sam Worthington), a former cop and now wanted fugitive who in order to prove his innocence (after being framed for the theft of a $40 million prized diamond), makes a desperate and life-threatening move to clear his name by hanging on the ledge, 21 floors up a high-rise.

Lydia Mercer (Elizabeth Banks), a famous police negotiator is called to the scene and has the duty to convince the “jumper” to back down on his threat but as the situation evolves she learns that Cassidy’s daredevil stunt, although captivating to the public and media, masks a dangerous ploy to reveal the truth about his tarnished name.

The film will keep you questioning the character of the “good” and “bad” guys and as simultaneous plots develop to frame and avenge Cassidy, the fast pace and nerve wrecking uncertainties will keep you hanging to your seats ’till Nick’s freedom is restored or forever tainted.
