Nick Cassidy (Sam Worthington) was an honest cop. Now he's in prison for a crime he didn't commit. Desperate, he seizes the first chance to escape. Hours later, he is freshly shaven in an expensive suit, standing on a window ledge high above New York City. As a crowd gathers below, police cordon off the area and agree to Nick's request to speak with pretty police negotiator Lydia Anderson (Elizabeth Banks). But Lydia doesn't know that she is part of his grand plan, a plan that could give them both a second chance.
Filled with clever twists, MAN ON A LEDGE is a smart, pulse-pounding thriller about a man determined to clear his name, exact revenge and get the girl... if he can just stay one step ahead of the men who put him behind the bars.
