Manhunt is an action-thriller that asks the question: Would you kill someone for $1 billion? When a wealthy man's granddaughter is brutally murdered, he decides to take justice into his own hands and issues a challenge heard around the world: "Kill the murderer, and I'll pay you $1 billion. If you die in the process, the money goes to your family". Now the only thing standing between the accused man and near-certain death is a U.S. Marshall with a code, a sworn duty to protect, and an impossible job: deliver the accused from New York to Los Angeles, with just about everyone from nurses to shop clerks to sophisticated criminal organizations trying kill them both and cash in.
