The thriller is in the vein of Enemy of the State and Three Days of the Condor, and asks the question, do you really know who your friends are? Three Yale graduate students set out on a road trip only to become wrapped up in a national security emergency after one of them frames the other two for the bombing of a famous New York art museum. The two friends on the run (Matthew Bomer, Logan Marshall-Green) must clear their names by determining the true identity of their betrayer (Aaron Stanford), whom they suspect has set them up as part of a larger conspiracy. Flashbacks to the trio's lives together in academia help illuminate the lie that was their friendship.
Stanford began his career with an intense focus in theatre, beginning with a local theatre in his small Massachusetts hometown, college theatre, and work with the London Academy of Theatre. Stanford returned to the stage in 2004, performing to rave reviews in Where Do We Live, at the Vineyard Theatre in Manhattan.
