Dr. Nathan Conrad (Michael Douglas) is a respected psychiatrist in uptown Manhattan. On the night before Thanksgiving, an old friend and colleague urges Nathan to help him with a particularly difficult patient, Elizabeth Burrows (Brittany Murphy). Elizabeth is an eighteen-year-old girl who witnessed the death of her father ten years earlier and has been in mental hospitals ever since. She is catatonic, refusing to eat or talk to anyone.

The following morning, Nathan's eight-year-old daughter, Jessie, is kidnapped. The kidnapper informs Nathan that in order to get her back, he must get a seven-digit number from his newest patient, Elizabeth, by 5 PM that evening or his daughter will be killed. Now, Nathan must race against time in a struggle to elicit the number from the catatonic Elizabeth and save his daughter's life.

Caught up in a race against time, he attempts to establish a connection with his unwilling patient, and encourage her to revisit the traumatic memories of her past. This, he hopes should help her to confront her memories and save his only child whilst his wife Aggie (Famke Janssen) lies helpless in bed with a broken leg.

As the painful truth begins to emerge, Conrad learns that Elisabeth's father was viciously murdered by Koster after he had double-crossed the gang and escaped with a valuable gem. The sought-after number inside the young girl's head will hopefully lead everyone involved to the remote Hart Island and, ultimately, the precious stone, but at what cost?
