Detective Jerry Black has made a promise he can't break, to catch a killer he can't find.
The suspect confessed to the murder, then took his own life. Case closed? Not for the homicide cop Jerry Black (Jack Nicholson). He has his own instincts about the crime. And even though he's ready to begin a gone-fishin' retirement, he promised the victim's family he'd find the killer.
Nicholson heads an all-star cast (Robin Wright Penn, Aaron Eckhart, Benicio Del Toro and more) in the gripping tale of a detective, driven to seek the truth...and driven into the darker reaches of his own mind by obsession.
