Every second is a lifetime. With the four-pound trigger pull, Jared and Sergei, two youth from vastly different backgrounds become forever linked. From that split second as the hand of the clock hits 8:37, each of their lives veers onto a path that set the seeds of their mutual destruction. 22 years later, Jared is released from prison for the death of Sergei’s father. Deeply regretful, Jared tries to forge ahead into a better life. Sergei, now a professor of mathematics, descends into a guilt-ridden abyss of a revenge-driven obsession. As the psychological drama develops both men must face their demons; where one man might lose his life while the other his sanity.
