A clandestine love affair may claim a terrible price from two desperate people in this psychological thriller. Charles Schine is an advertising executive who is married to Deanna and has a young diabetic daughter whose third kidney operation has just failed. Charles’ life turns a most unexpected corner when he meets Lucinda Harris on a commuter train. Lucinda, who is also married with a daughter, keeps bumping into Charles on the train, and they strike up a friendship that soon grows into something deeper. Eventually Charles and Lucinda meet for lunch, then dinner, then check into a posh hotel, but the consequences turn out to be greater than they imagined, the dangerous criminal Philippe LaRoche breaks into the couple’s hotel room, beats Charles nearly unconscious, and rapes Lucinda. The problem doesn’t end there, however, LaRoche soon unveils both his certainty that the couple avoided calling the police, and — more troublingly — his possession of Charles’ personal information. When he makes the ill-advised attempt to blackmail the couple, Charles turns to a rough-cut friend from his workplace, who offers to help out — for a small commission.Derailed was the first American project for Swedish filmmaker Mikael Håfström.
