Late for court, high-powered attorney Gavin Banek (Affleck) is weaving through heavy traffic. In a different lane is Doyle Gibson (Jackson), a father whose right to see his children rests on the decision of a judge with a full docket and no time to spare. On the surface, Banek and Gibson are two very different men: One is struggling to reach the top of his career; the other is desperately scrambling away from rock bottom. But a minor accident will drive these two strangers to the brink of self-destruction, and prove that rage can equalize any playing field when men turn into beasts.
