We have your wife. You get her back for two million cash. On an ordinary afternoon, an ordinary man, a gardener of modest means, gets a phone call out of his worst nightmare. The caller is dead serious. He doesn t care that Mitch can t raise that kind of money. If she's everything to you, then you ll find a way.
