Gary Oldman, Dennis Hopper and Oscar® winner* Frances McDormand star in this passionately acted and frighteningly real "triumph-over-adversity story"(Screen International) made all the more compelling…because it's true. Oldman is Emmet Foley, a decorated Korean War hero unable to adjust to civilian life. Loading his pistol, Foley takes aim at his Florida hometown, hoping to be killed by police so his wife can collect the insurance.

With the help of a fellow inmate (Hopper), Foley begins a campaign to correct the hospital's vile practices. But can he overcome his reputation as a madman and become a hero once again? *1996: Actress, Fargo
