An ex-con, with a wife and young daughter, gets fired from his job at the brewery when they find out about his prior conviction. Desperate for money, he agrees to pull a heist with his brother, who was just released from jail. Everything goes wrong and several people are killed. He's judged guilty of three counts of murder and is sentenced to death, since it's Texas. But when he wakes up he finds himself out in Oregon with a new job and identity. He's the groundskeeper for a mental institution. He primarily keeps to himself but wants his old life back. They tell them that if he leaves that he'll die. Then, they tell him that his wife and daughter died in a bus accident. Are they lying? Then, a woman psychiatrist shows an interest in him but he's not ready to move on and put his old life behind him.
We're not really sure if this is all really happening, if he's simply crazy or if he's dead and he's in some kind of limbo, sort of like a cross between REMO WILLIAMS and JACOB'S LADDER. Paul Walker (TIMELINE) gives a heartfelt performance and I'll watch virtually anything with Piper Perabo (THE CAVE) in it. The movie was all a bit familiar, though.
