Frank (Cage) is a paramedic in New York City's Hell's Kitchen in the early 1990's. Lately, he has been haunted by visions of Rose, a beautiful 18-year-old girl who died before he could resuscitate her. Eventually, another image begins to haunt him, that of Mary (Arquette), a recovering drug addict who enters Frank's life when he arrives at her house to help save her father. His spiral into even greater confusion is paralleled with his three driving partners: Larry (Goodman), whose advice to Frank is not to think about all the death and violence; Marcus (Rhames), a religious fanatic who uses his medical skills as propaganda for the Lord; and Walls, a loose cannon who has no sensible grounding whatsoever. Frank's desperate pursuit of Mary leads him to "The Oasis," a place operated by drug dealer Cy (Curtis), where people can escape from the city whenever the pressure becomes too unbearable. As the days begin to blur even more, Frank purposely arrives to work late in order to be fired. He isn't. He must ride out the nightmare, trying to redeem the lives of Rose, Mary, and himself in the process.
