Broken Trust (2012) - full transcript

Sophie Anderson is the lead attorney on an intellectual property case against a corrupt pharmaceutical company. When her mentor and boss Bruce Henshaw is kidnapped, Sophie becomes a pawn in an elaborate scheme that jeopardizes her case and more. Sophie races against the clock to save Bruce and escape the deadly traps that have been set to snare her.

Yes, Grace? - I'm about to
leave for the night Mr. Allen,

is there anything else you need?

No, I'm fine.

Thank you, that's fine.

Good night.

Everything all right
Mr. Allen?

Um, I'm... I'm sorry.

I'm late for an appointment.

If something happens to me,
take this to the police.

Good night Grace.

Good night.

What I would like
to know is this:

Did Orbik Tech, a billion
dollar pharmaceutical giant

use the work of this man,
my client Dr. Cook,

in the development of
their drug Xanoxin.

A drug which has
netted the company

600 million in annual sales.

Which is really what this
case is all about.


Excuse me?
- Settle down!

I found no evidence in my
research to suggest that Orbik

violated your client's patent

in their development of Xanoxin.

That's not what you told me.

May I remind you that you
are under oath.

Yes, your honor.

You came into my
office and you...

look at me!

You came into my office and you
examined Dr. Cooke's research,

and you said that without
his process, and I quote,

"Xanoxin would be
completely ineffective..."

No! - "If it were not for
the work of Dr. Cooke".

I... I was mistaken.


Upon closer examination
of the evidence,

I found that my initial
conclusion was incorrect.

You mean after Orbik paid you.

- Sustained.

How much was it?

Maybe you could use it to buy
yourself a conscience.

Counsel, you are new
to this courtroom

so I'm gonna put that down
as youthful enthusiasm

and not contempt.

But if you plan to have a long
career as a lawyer,

I would recommend you learn
a little restraint.

My apologies, your honor.

No further questions.

Mrs. Sarnowski, are
you prepared to cross?

The defense does not wish
to cross-examine the witness

at this time.

Wanna tell me what happened
in there?

Why, because it didn't hurt
bad enough the first time?

They're tearing apart
our entire case.

Every witness, every piece
of evidence.

You're right.

We should go back in there
and tell Sarnowski we give up,

I'm sure our clients won't mind.

That is not what I meant.

I know, I'm sorry.

It's just... I finally
get my first big case

and I'm watching it fall apart
right in front of my eyes.

At least we still have
James Allen.

Yeah, the guy who didn't show up

for your meeting last night.

I'm sure he had a reason.

Yeah, it was probably your
pal Sarnowski up there.

She probably sent him on
a one-way cruise to Bali.


He said he wants this
out in the open,

he wants to clear
his conscience.

How do you know all this?

You had one meeting with him.

He swore he has evidence
to prove Orbik Tech

stole Dr. Cook's research.

I believe he's telling
the truth, David.

I hope you're right.

He's all we've got left.

Hello, this is James Allen
at Smith and Young,

please leave a message.

Mr. Allen, it's Sophie Anderson
calling again.

It's very important
that I speak with you.

Please call me back
as soon as possible.

Hi. - Heard you had a
bit of a setback today.

Yeah... Waterloo was a setback,

this was a complete disaster.

If you want to replace
me on the case

I completely understand.

Don't be ridiculous!

You had to learn to swim
with the sharks some time.

Then Sarnowski's a good
a place as any to start.

She is incredible.

She brings out the dead then
charges four grand an hour

for the privilege.

Maybe we're on the wrong side.

I don't know about that.

I'd like to think that
somewhere out there

there's something
money can't buy.

I knew you were perfect
for this case.

You sound just like your father.

You don't agree?

Well, let's just say
that your dad and I

didn't always see eye to eye.

- He was an idealist.
- What about you?

I'm a realist.

If it was up to him,
we'd probably still be

in that little storefront
down on Columbus

where we first started.

And if it were up to you, people
wouldn't be able to afford our services.

Well, I guess that's why he
and I worked together so well

all those years.

And what about you Sophie?

What about me, what?

You know, this job is
too brutal to go home

to an empty house every night.

When was the last time
you talked to Eric?

Yeah, I thought I got rid
of those.

You know, after
your father died,

I promised myself that I'd
do my best to fill his shoes.

You have Bruce, I couldn't
ask for anything better.

Then let me give you
a little advice.


You can do all the good
in the world,

but it doesn't mean anything
if you do it alone.

Advice taken counselor,

now can we please
drop the subject?

Excuse me Mr. Harris,
you have a visitor.


How about a drink later?
- I can't.

I've got to spend the night
conjuring up

a miracle for tomorrow.

Well, we can conjure together
over a drink!

What do you say?
Come on, the usual spot. Nine?

You're a very persuasive man.

You bet I am!

I'm a lawyer.

I hate that!

- When Mr. Harris arranges a meeting

and doesn't put it in the book.

Who is he?
- I have no idea.

He's kind of hot though.

I'm sure he's just a new client.

Can I ask you something?


Is it true what everyone's
been saying?

What's everyone saying Clarice?

Um, about Mr. Harris planning
to sell the firm.

I hadn't heard that.

Because I can't lose
this job right now.

I know.

Look, if I were you
I wouldn't worry.

You know how rumors
get started around here.

Well, that's why I wanted
to ask you.

You're closer to Mr. Harris
than anyone.

Look, I promise you if he says
anything I'll let you know.


You should go home.

Are you sure?


Get some rest, both of you.

Yes, I'm still at the office
but I'm leaving soon.

How was your meeting?



I'll give you anything you want.



Bruce, is that you?

Hi, you've reached Bruce Harris,

please leave a message.

Hi, it's me.

I just got a strange call
from your number.

Please call me back and
let me know you're all right.


Excuse me, did you see
someone come in here?

He's tall, grey hair, 60's...

I'm afraid not.
Anything I can get you?

Um, I'll just have a sparkling
water, thanks.

One sparkling water,
coming right up.

Thank you.
- You bet.

Good night folks, see you again!

Come on, come on.

Hi, you've reached Bruce Harris,

please leave a message.

Can I get you another?
- No, I'm okay.

Let me get my card.

I think I must have left
my wallet at the office.


So this guy is your boss?

He was my father's partner
at our law firm.

Well, sometimes people
who work together

play tricks on each other.

Maybe some kind of power game
or something?

No, no.
You don't know Bruce.

Okay. Okay,
it was just an idea Sophie.

So you've got a picture?

I could hand it around
to the units in his area.

Peter... Look, I called him
at his house, he's not there.

Well, it's only been what,
a couple hours?

Maybe he went some place,
had some drinks...



What are you doing here?

Um, it's Bruce.

He's missing.


What do you mean missing?

Um, we were supposed
to meet for a drink

but that was three hours ago.

Okay, well maybe he got busy,
something came up.

This is more than that.

Um... I got this weird
phone call at the office.

Weird how?

Well the phone rang
and his number came up,

but when I answered it all
I could was rustling,

you know like it was in his
pocket, and it sounded like,

I don't know...
Like he was running.

And then I heard breathing

it sounded like a gunshot.

A gunshot?
- Yeah, a gunshot.

Are you sure it wasn't
a truck backfiring,

a television on too loud?

I know it sounds like
I'm overreacting.


Maybe I should just go out
there and talk to Peter.

No, okay, all right.

Is there anyone that
you can think of

that might have a
reason to hurt him?

A case he lost,
someone with a grudge...

No, I mean he's
practically retired.

The last case he argued was
a speeding ticket he got

on the way to Palm Springs.

Well, maybe he's got a
girlfriend you don't know about,

or a boyfriend he doesn't
want you to find out about.

Is there anyone new
at the office?

No, it's nothing like that.

Wait, there was this one guy
he met with today.

Okay, you got a name?

He didn't have an appointment,
he sort of just showed up.

Well officially in a missing
persons case...

No, I know they have to
be missing for 24 hours.

I used to live with a cop.
- Must've been fun.


Can you just do me a favor?

Do this as a friend,
not as a cop.

All right, I'll do what
I can as a friend.

But in the meantime
why don't you go home

and get some sleep.

I'm fine.

You don't look fine.

You always knew how to make
me feel good.

I'm just saying,
you work too much.

Eric, I didn't come here for
one of your famous lectures

on my work habits, okay?

So what, I'm not allowed
to care about you anymore?

Could you just...
please help me.

I'll do what I can.

We'll find him.

Good night Sophie.

Good night.

- So what?

Come on, it's been over a year
since you've seen her.

What was it like?

Same old thing.

Bruce, what is going on?

You had me scared to death.


Hello Sophie.

Who is this?

Keep walking.


Touch that handle
and Bruce Harris dies.

Who are you?

Who I am is not important.

What is important is how much
you care for your friend

and what you're willing
to do to keep him alive.

How do I know you didn't
just steal his phone

and this is all
just some sort of...

Sophie please!


Don't let them!
- Bruce!

Now that we've got
that out of the way...

Don't you dare hurt him.

You're not in a position
to threaten me.

What do you want?
- First, some ground rules.

Number one, no police.

Right now you're wondering
which building I'm in

and if there'll be enough
time for the cops to find me

before I kill Bruce.

Can I help you ma'am?

Trust me, there isn't.

Ma'am, is everything okay?

Yes, everything's okay.

I'm just trying to
talk on my phone,

is there a law against that?


No, sure isn't.

Sorry to bother you.

It's fine.

Very well done.

Now go to your car.

You've got things to do.

I'm not doing anything for you

until I know he's safe.

This is not a negotiation.

Get in the car, now.


Are you there?

Did you really think
I'd leave you Sophie?

Now do exactly what I say
and everything will be fine.

Write this down.

Okay, hold on.

You're gonna have to
move faster than that,

Bruce's life depends on it.

Okay, okay I'm ready.

Zero zero six...

Zero zero six...

Seven six five...

Seven six five...

One nine seven six...

One nine seven six.

What is this?
- You'll find out soon enough.

Northeast corner, fourth
and Mission, eleventh floor.

You have 20 minutes.
- No, no wait!

What is this, what am
I supposed to do?


Okay, twenty minutes.

Destination entered.

Travel time, 19 minutes.


You're in.


How did you know that I...
- That's not important.

Do you still have the number
I gave you?

- Good.

Now all you have to do is
locate the file it belongs to.

Wait, what?
What file?

Where am I supposed to look?

That's your problem...

and Mr. Harris' if you don't
find it in 15 minutes.

I can't talk right now.

- I'll call you back.

You were right.

I stopped by Bruce's house,
there was nobody there.

Is everything okay?


I have your file.


These are the documents
James Allen

was going to give
to me, aren't they?

That's not really
any of your concern.

Who do you work for, Orbik Tech?

There's an old payphone

at the corner of Ashby
and Sacramento,

you have 20 minutes.

I'm not going anywhere until
you put Bruce on the phone.

You are a lawyer Miss Anderson.

You should know that the
photos you've just taken

are inadmissible in court.

Now... drive.

I'm here.


I'm here, what am I supposed
to do with the file?

I don't know what
you're talking about.

I'm not in the mood for this.

Where is Bruce?

Who's Bruce?

Who is this?

Who's this?
Somebody pages me from this number.

I didn't pa...



What's wrong?

They're watching me.


We have to shut the blinds.

Wait, what?
Sophie what are you talking about?

Who's watching?
- The people who have Bruce.

Okay, slow down.
Who has Bruce?

I don't know. They called,
I could hear him in the background,

he sounded scared.

And when was this?

Tonight, a couple hours ago.

Right after I saw you.

And you're just telling
me this now.

I thought I could take care
of it by myself.

Take care of what?


I was supposed to meet a
whistleblower named James Allen,

he works for a patent company
called Smith and Young.

He said that he has evidence

that would help me win a big
case against Orbik Tech.

Yeah, I read about that
in the paper.

What? I like to keep up
with what you're doing.

He didn't show up.

Um, I've left him messages,
called his office...

He's completely disappeared.

And what does this have
to do with Bruce Harris?

Whoever kidnapped him
wanted the files

that James Allen was
gonna give to me.

They said that if I didn't
get the originals for them,

they were gonna kill Bruce.

Okay, so if this Allen guy
didn't show up,

then how do you have
the original?

Sophie, you didn't...

You broke into their building?

What was I supposed to do,
just let him die?

Okay, where's the original now?

They set me up.

They sent me to a
street corner downtown

and then stole it from the car.


Are you out of your mind? Do you
have any idea how dangerous this is?

Where are you going?

We're going downtown,
we need help with this.

No, no...

They said no police or
they're gonna kill him.

They always say that.

What if it's the truth
this time?

Okay... So what do you
want me to do?

I don't know.

Nothing I guess.

I've just been running
around all night,

I guess I just wanted to feel
safe for a few minutes.

You still have that?

Yeah I was gonna get rid of it

but it's such a
good photo, so...

Yeah it is.

Yeah um, actually I scanned
it onto this drive

with about a hundred
others ones of us

if you wanna download it.

Yeah, thanks.

Would you like a coffee?

That'd be great.


Um, let's see.

What have we got?

We've got South American,
African, Jamaican...

This is Eric.

Put her on the phone.

Who is this?
- Just do as your told.

Who the hell do you think
you're talking to?

Eric Robinson.

Born in Worcester,

August 11th, 1980.

Joined the San Francisco
police department in 2003,

promoted to detective in 2007.

Now that we have that
out of the way,

put your ex-fiancée
on the telephone.

Or her friend dies.

I'm here.
- I know where you are.

The question is why.

You were told no police.

No he's not police,
he's... he's just um...

I'm afraid you don't
fully understand

the seriousness of
the situation.

Maybe this will help you.


- Sophie!

He's got a knife!


My finger! My finger!

Now, leave Robinson's
apartment and go to your car,

and let's not waste
any more time tonight.

Mr. Harris has only
nine fingers left.

My God.

Okay you know what?
That's it.

I'm going to bring you over
to Peter's place.

You'll be safe, they're
never gonna find you,

and I'm gonna go downtown.

We're gonna get some help,
we're gonna find Bruce, all right?

Just give me like, 30 seconds.

Okay, I'm ready.





That wasn't very bright.

I left the apartment.

Just please stop hurting him,
just let him go!

Well that's up to you
isn't it Sophie?

You have the file, what more
do you want from me?

We still have some
unfinished business.

Reach under your seat.

The package in your hand

must be delivered
within 30 minutes.

What is it?

I wouldn't open it
if I were you.

You might not like what
you find.

60 minutes Sophie,
Bruce is counting on you.

Honey, I don't like me working
nights either,

but look at the bright side.

At least we get
the freshest muffins

first thing in the morning.

I gotta go, I'll see you soon.

Red flag this license number.

Who is it?
- Sophie.

I wanna know where she is, and I want you to
check the system, see if we got a James Allen.

Check the missing persons,
the morgue...

Does it have to be this morning?

I've been working all night.

I'll owe you.

Hi, you've reached
Sophie Anderson,

please leave a message
and your name and number.

You must be psychic.

There's a missing persons
report filed two days ago

on a James Allen.

He works for a...

Smith and Young.

Well now you're scaring me.

I I need you to track this
cell phone number for me.

You got a warrant?
- No.

I don't got a warrant,

this one's gotta
be off the books.

Who is it?

Some guy who's been calling
Sophie using that number.

I need you to locate it.

Well maybe she's got
a new boyfriend.

You're not turning into some
kind of weird stalker,

are you?

Just map the calls, will you?

See, I was hoping
that the two of

you would get back
together but...

not like this.





You killed him?

Why did you?
- Sophie!


Are you all right?

He wants you to open
the package.


Okay, okay.

My God.

You set me up!

Why are you doing this to me?

It's almost over, Sophie.

I've done everything you
wanted me to do.

Just let him go!

Not yet.


Why are you making me run
around in circles like this?

What are you trying to do?

They're tearing apart
our entire case!

I heard you had a bit of
a setback today.


Are you still there?

How do you know where I am?

Counselor, do I need
to remind you

how important punctuality
is in my courtroom?

Your honor, I'm sure
Miss Anderson is on her way

if you could just give us
a few more minutes.

Your honor, if the court could
please accept my apologies,

I was unavoidable detained.

Very well counselor,

you may take a moment
to compose yourself.

Where the hell have you been?

I had some running around to do.

Did you find James Allen?


He's not going to be
any help to us.

Want some more bad news?

Take a look at this.

What is it?

Some new evidence Sarnowski
just entered.

Are those the same clothes
you wore yesterday?

My God!

Read the bottom.

Because of the relationship
between cellular matter,

no transfection is required.

They doctored it.


This isn't the original version
of the document.

How do you know that?

Because I've seen it before.


If the prosecution is
thoroughly relaxed,

perhaps now we can proceed.

Certainly, your honor.

And again, we apologize
for the delay.

Miss Anderson.

Regarding the new evidence

presented by the prosecution,

we feel there are certain
issues with regards

to the validity of
the documentation

vise a vie, certain

My God!
- Sophie?

My God.

My God, no!


Your honor, a short recess

Recess granted.

15 minutes.




What the hell is wrong with you?


Are you kidding me?

You show up late and then
you pull that stunt in there?

Are you trying to get them
to call a mistrial?

No, no, don't let them do that.

I don't think we have
much choice.

Ask for a continuance, stall,

whatever you have to do.

I just need a little more time.

To do what?

You saw those documents.

Orbik has an answer for
everything we throw at them.

Ask for an early lunch.

That'll give us at least
90 more minutes.

And then what?

Just trust me, David.


All right.

I'll talk to the judge,
I'll see what I can do.

Thank you.

You're welcome.

I wanna talk to him.

I'm afraid that's impossible
right now.

He's in a lot of pain,
as you could imagine.

Please, just stop.

Well that is entirely up
to you, isn't it?

No it isn't!

I've done everything
you've told me to do.

I didn't tell you to go
to court.

What difference does it make?

You have the decks stacked,
we can't... we can't win.

Or can we?

There's still a loose end
somewhere, isn't there?

Am I right?

I said am I right?

We're not finished yet.

I'll be in touch.

Thanks for taking the time
to see me.

I just have a few questions
for you,

it shouldn't take too long.

I'm glad you came by.

I told the officers who came in
the other day how worried I was

but... they didn't seem
very concerned about it.

As if people just disappear
every day.

When did you report him missing?

I didn't.

His wife did, two days ago.

He didn't come home
and she got worried

so she called here and
I told her he left

and was probably on his way,

but... well, he didn't show

And what does Mr. Allen
do here?

Mostly the patent law.

He oversees the paperwork
for our biggest clients.

Like Orbik Tech?

We have many clients.

Was he working on Xanoxin?

I'm not supposed to discuss
that sort of thing.

And where's his computer?

Um... I.T. took it away
for maintenance.

So your boss is missing

and they just happen to take
his computer in for repairs?


Is there anything else unusual
that happened around here

before he disappeared?

There is one thing.

I know Mr. Allen knew something
was going to happen.

How's that?

The last time I saw
him he gave me,

you know those flash
drives for your computer,

and he told me that if anything
were to happen to him,

to give it to the police.

And where is it now?

Well, something happened.

I gave it to the police.

Excuse me.

All right.

Thank you.

Sophie. What have you
gotten yourself into?

Peter, I need you to run
a plate number for me.

Eric listen, that guy you're
looking for, James Allen?

They found him in a motel
room this morning.

Good, I wanna talk to him.

That's gonna be tricky.
He's dead.

Did somebody kill him?

Not just somebody.

They positive ID'd her
on a security camera

and they've got her
driver's license.

Now you better get
ready for this.

Who is it?


In the city's latest homicide,

police were called to the Royal
Inn Motel early this morning,

to the investigate the discovery
of a body.

The victim, 32-year-old
James Allen...

Pardon me while I powder
my nose.

If you've come to offer
a plea bargain,

you're a little late.

I want a name.

Is this an interrogation,

Perhaps I need a lawyer.

Who's behind this?

Behind what?

You know it's clever, if
you really think about it.

Using me of all people
to get rid of the evidence,

that would've saved my case.

I'm sure I have no idea
what you're talking about.

Tell me, what is the going rate

for a soul these days?



Ask yourself.

You're the one with
the behavior problems.

Speaking of which,

I hear we're now adding murder
to your list of accolades.

I didn't kill him.

Well then I hope you have
a great lawyer.

Do you have any idea how much
trouble you're in, counselor?

Do you?

A man is dead.

And another one,

who's the closest thing
I have to family,

is being tortured.

So a little more trouble doesn't
make a difference to me.


I am a small cog in
a very large wheel.

You want answers,

I suggest you go a little
higher up the ladder.

Here's what I can tell you,

I love what I do and
I am great at it.

And I have always, without fail,

represented my client's
best interests,

whether I agree with them
or not.

I'll give you 30 seconds
before I call the police.

Don't do me any favors.

I found her.

Her license number just
popped up.

She got a parking ticket at
Stockton and Sacramento

two minutes ago.


Eric, what are you doing here?
How did you find me?

Come on, we gotta get you
out of here.

James Allen is dead.
The police think you were there.

I... I was.
- What?

It's all a part of it. I don't know
what they want me to do but I...

I can't stop until
they let Bruce go.

You need to go, you need
to let me finish this.

Sophie Anderson?


You brought them?
- No, I swear.

They said no police!

I didn't!
Nobody knows I'm here.

Guys, come on.
She didn't do anything.


Look, I'm a lawyer, I
can explain everything.



Yeah, I need your help
on something.

So why'd you kill him?

I told you, I didn't kill him.

Why would I?

The man was about
to make my case.

You had a meeting set.

He missed it.

Says here you rescheduled.

I took the liberty of checking
your calendar.

You had an appointment with
him the night he was killed.

No, no, no that's impossible.

We didn't reschedule, he
didn't even get back to me.

My computer must've been hacked.

So this hacker also provided
your driver's license

and credit card to the hotel,

for the room you
rented in your name?

My wallet was stolen from
my office, okay?

I haven't been able to find
it since last night.


Your father left you
substantial shares of the firm

when he died, didn't he?

Yes, but I don't see how
that has anything to do...

Anderson and Harris have
been running in the red

for a year now.

The Orbik Tech case
would fix it.

Am I right?
- It would help, yes.


So, Mr. Allen comes forward,
agrees to help you.

Great, right?

Here you're thinking he's
gonna save your case,

save the firm.

Something goes wrong, you argue.

Push comes to shove,
things get out of control and bang!

You shoot him.

I don't even know how to use
a gun!

You lived with a cop for a year,

you expect me to believe that?

It's the truth.
- Now with Allen out of the way,

you've gotta clean up your mess.

Break into his files,

destroy any evidence
of your involvement,

and went to the hotel
to clean up.

But somebody tipped off the
police before you could finish.

Am I right?

Because if you have another
explanation for it,

I would love to hear it.

I can't tell you.

You can't tell me?

Or you won't?

I'll let you think about
that for a bit.


You're doing an excellent job.

You're watching this?

Did you know that the city farms
out their network security

to the lowest bidder?

We have access to every camera
and every computer file

in this nation.

How did you even know
I'd be here?

You wanted me to get arrested,
didn't you?

There's a reason for everything.

In this case, it's
the evidence room.

Guide number 4572.


10 minutes.

I don't have a lot of time.

I'm not allowed anywhere
near your case.

I have to get to
the evidence room.


That's why they set me up
for Allen's murder.

They wanted me to end up here.

Sophie, this is out of control.

A man is already dead.

And another one is going
to die if I don't stop it.

You're gonna let us handle
this, alright?

We're gonna find Bruce.

He said no police.

Sophie, look around.
You're already in a lot of trouble.

I'm gonna go talk to the D.A.,

try and organize some
kind of bail arrangement

and get you outta here.

Eric, there's no time.

Please, just trust me.

Let me handle it?


You're right, I should let
you handle it.

Okay, look I'll be right back.


Thank you.


I gotta do another DNA test
on a weapon in there.

Got a request slip?

I must've left it upstairs.


You're new.

Yeah, yeah I just got
transferred here from Michigan.


So I talked to the chief and...

Hey you.


You forgot to write down
what department you're in.

Didn't I?

No, you didn't.

Well I'm in fraud.

No you're not, I know
everybody in fraud.

Well like I said, I just
transferred here.

Actually, you know what? You just
wait here, I'm gonna call upstairs.

Give me your badge number?

What's the hold up down here?

Come on, you know we need that
stuff right away, let's go.

You know her detective?

Yeah, you know the captain,

always giving me the rookies.

Yeah, well you got your work
cut out for you here.

What the hell are you up to?
- This is what they wanted.

Allen, James.

Wait, wait, what are you doing?

I wanna know what I'm throwing
my career away for.


It's Dr. Cooke's original
research for Orbik Tech.

It's clinical studies,
the trials, everything!

This must've been what Allen's
assistant was talking about.

He gave it to her before
he disappeared.

But how'd your guy on the
phone know where it was?

He said they have access to
the entire police department.

The security cameras,
the files, everything.


I can't see you Sophie.

That's not good for
Mr. Harris's health.

I have what you wanted,
I found the flash drive.

I'm impressed.

Bring it to the presidio.

The west maintenance building,
should take you 30 minutes.

Or Bruce dies.
- That's impossible!

For Mr. Harris's sake,
I hope not.

And Sophie, come alone.

It's copy protected, I can't
save it to the hard drive.

You hand this over to them,
you've got nothing.

Except Bruce.

You know, they're gonna find
out you're missing.

We've gotta get you out of here.


What are those for?

Trust me.

And give me my badge back.

Almost there.

How the hell did she get out?

- Hey!


Detective Robinson!

My truck's out back.

If they catch us they'll
throw you off the force,

or worse.

I've already had worse.

Living without you.

Why did we break up again?

You said our relationship
wasn't exciting enough.

Where are we going?
- Just uncuff me first.


What are you doing?

I can't let you do this.

Just go back in there, tell
them I made you help me.

Sophie, unlock this door.

I love you.


- Where are you?

Johnson is screaming
for your head,

she says you took Sophie.

No, not exactly.

Well, where is she?

Look, I don't know.
She took the car and...

Okay, the phone calls,
the ones going to Sophie's cell phone...

Did you find out where
they're coming from?

Yeah, I ran a
triangulation twice

but it doesn't make any sense.

Where Peter?

According to this
the calls are coming

from the middle of the presidio.

You made it Sophie.

Now walk away from your vehicle.

You're a very brave young lady.

Let's just get this over with.

There's a path to your left,
follow it.

You have something for me?

Show me Bruce first.

You're a brave lady.

Show me Bruce, or I'll walk
and give this thing to CNN.

You've looked at it.

Enough to know that
you're with Orbik Tech.

This is all quite a bit bigger
than Orbik Tech.

Then who is it?

I don't think having
that information

would help you sleep at night.

Where is he?

Bring him to the door.

- Bruce!


Thank you.

Maybe we can work together
again some time.


Are you all right?

He was right here,
I just saw him.



They're getting away.


I'm gonna call it in,
get some back up.

Somebody's been in the car.

Why did you do that?


The flash drive?

Don't worry about it.

Let's go.

Bruce, it's over.

Let's go.

The cause of yesterday's
explosion is still unclear.

But the vehicle involved has
been identified as belonging

to detective Eric Robinson,
who police believe allegedly

helped a suspect
in the recent murder

of lawyer James Allen
to escape custody.

Sophie Anderson was a person
of interest in that case

and while no connection has been
established between the two,

the investigation continues.

Please everyone.

Could I have your
attention please?

This has been a harrowing
experience for all of us

and I won't lie to you,

it's been very
difficult personally.

Not the least because I,
I considered Sophie...

well, she was like
a daughter to me.

And as someone who's been very
close to her and her family,

I feel it would be prudent for
us to show a little restraint

and wait for the police press
conference later this evening.

There's another matter I would
like to discuss with you.

And that is...

the future of this firm.

Now I've heard a lot of rumors
about financial difficulties

and bankruptcies
and mergers et cetera.

But I think you deserve
to have someone

set the record straight.

Now, the truth is,
this firm has had some hard times of late.

Perhaps we haven't
adapted to the changing times

as well as we could have.

So... the board and I,
this morning...

We finalized a deal for a
takeover from Sloane Halligan.

Ever since I founded this firm

with Marty Anderson
so many years ago,

I have poured my heart
and my soul...

My sweat and tears into each and
every case that we have fought.

And into, into every client

we've ever had the privilege
to represent.

And If any of you
have any questions,

I'll be happy to address them
privately later on.

Thank you.

So... what is a finger
worth these days?

30 million?


my God.

Sophie, you're alive!

I can't believe this,
I'm so happy to see you.

Are you really?

Well of course!

If it wasn't for you,
they would've killed me!

I don't, I don't think so.

I don't understand
what you mean.

I heard your little speech
out there.

It was very impressive.

Very heart felt.

How much to you stand to make
on the merger anyway?


I'll have less than when
I started the firm.

Well I guess it's good that
you have your compensation

from Orbik Tech coming?

Sophie... I don't know what
you mean.

Come on Bruce.

Let's just stop this.

It was you on the phone,
wasn't it?

This is not a negotiation.

Get in the car.

You've been watching me
this whole time.

You tipped Orbik Tech off
about their whistleblower,

and then framed me
for the murder.

I had to clean up the mess.

You tried to have me killed.

No, no, no.

That was not my idea.

I was promised that no harm
would come to you.

I guess that's why they rigged
the car to explode

with enough time for us to run.

It was very thoughtful.

Get out of the car!

Very sloppy.

How could you do this Bruce?

I loved you like a father.

And when I thought that
they were hurting you...

I mean, my God, you cut
off your own finger.

That was their idea.

They thought you needed proof.

A fingerprint, a blood sample...

But you just let them do it?

It's... a great deal of money.

Look, the firm was dying.

Everything your father
and I worked for

was about to be destroyed.

Don't you dare bring him
into this.

This doesn't have to end
this way.

I... I can cut you in.

These people, they have
billions of dollars.

We can make the charges go away.

You'll never have to work
again as long as you live!

What about everyone else?

All those people who trusted
you to take care of them!

You are still wanted for murder.

The flash drive,

the only hope you have of
winning this case, is gone!

Take the deal!

Not today.

That's it.

You have the right
to remain silent.

Anything you say or do can
and will be held against you

in a court of law.

You have the right to
an attorney.

If you cannot afford
an attorney, we'll...

But Allen's evidence has
already been destroyed!

You mean this?

But the...

The drive I gave your friend
was just some photographs.

But this... this is the one
that's gonna win my case.

Do you understand these rights
that have been read to you?



Do me favor.

Tell everyone the sale
to Sloane Halligan is off.

I think it's what my father
would've wanted.

Miss Anderson, Miss Anderson!

So now that the patent has
been awarded to Dr. Cooke,

what's next for you?

Seeing Orbik Tech
and it's executives

held accountable for
the death of James Allen.

They and their associates
are not above the law.

What about your former
colleague, Bruce Harris?

Due process overdue.

Mr. Harris will be prosecuted
to the full extent of the law.

You haven't seen
the last of us yet.

Thank you.

Mrs. Sarnowski.

Any comment?

What do you think I'm gonna say?

Hurray, we lost?

We plan to appeal.
No further comments.

Nice work counselor.

Hope to see you on the
battlefield again soon.

Or the ladies' room.

Counselor, may I add
my congratulations.

I must admit, I owe
much of my success

to a certain member of the
law enforcement community.

And how exactly do you plan
to repay him?

I'm sure I can think
of something...

You still have those handcuffs?

So, can I ask you a question?

Is this an interrogation?

Yes it is.

When you handed him
that flash drive,

did you really give
him our photos?

I guess we'll have to take
some new ones then.


Who was that?

Wrong number.
