Richard Dreyfuss stars as therapist Jake Rainer in this dramatic thriller written by Akiva Goldsman. Summoned to a savage double murder scene, Jake finds an officer trying to get a knife away from an autistic boy named Tim Warden (Ben Faulkner). Tim's eighteen your old sister Sylvie (Liv Tyler) is cooperative, telling the police about a mysterious man that she walked in on. Sherriff Mitch Rivers (J.T.Walsh) has no clues and asks Jake to help pull the information thats hidden within Tim. But we come to learn throughout the movie that Jake has tremendous guilt over a young boy who committed suicide in his care and doesn't want to help. Jake eventually gives in and through several sessions he learns that Tim speaks through many voices -- other peoples voices, specifically his sister, mother and father. Just as Jake is about to make a break through with Tim, Sheriff Rivers gets Tim in the hands of Dr. Harlinger (John Lithgow). The doctor hypnotizes Tim and purposely sends him in a rage to show his abnormal strength. This leads the Sheriff to believe Tim killed his parents. Jake begs for one more day to work with Tim, and he gets it but Sylvie has other things in store for Jake. She drugs him and puts him on a frozen lake to drown but he doesn't. As he crawls back in he figures out everything that happened that night when he looks at the cards that Tim had been cutting through out the movie.
