When Russell Williams - an unwitting pawn in a high-stakes power game - is forced to kill several Florida vacationers, a master plan is set in motion, and the only person who can save Williams from death row has no notion of the forces pitted against him, or just how high up the pyramid the conspiracy goes.

The M.E. thinks the shooting took place around 3 oa#39;clock as Sherman was closing up the place.
