Wrongfully Accused - Movie Synopsis & Plot
Handsome superstar violinist Ryan Harrison (Nielsen) is at the very height of his brilliant career when he is vamped into a brief but sizzling affair with wealthy society lady and temptress Lauren Goodhue (Kelly Le Brock), who sets him up as the patsy in her plot to kill her husband, portable potty tycoon Hibbing Goodhue (Michael York), who has uncovered her plan to assassinate the UN Secretary General (GERARD PLUNKETT). Although he (Leslie Nielsen as Ryan Harrison) is viciously (in a PG-13 sense) attacked by the one-armed, one-legged, one-eyed killer (AARON PEARL, who actually has all these body parts but acted like he didn't), the hapless Harrison (Nielsen) is soon (quickly) arrested (jailed), wrongfully accused (a movie), found guilty (one of the few persons actually convicted in American courts this year) and sentenced to death buffet style - by electrocution, lethal injection and firing squad. And the story doesn't stop here. Harrison escapes!
Luckily the prison bus carrying Ryan drives over a banana peel and tumbles out of control down the side of a mountain and lands in the path of an oncoming freight train (the "Friggin' Express"), allowing Harrison to escape in a flurry of blazing heroism. He's a man on the run, a fugitive embarked on a death-defying race against the relentless, all-knowing human bloodhound, U.S. Marshal Fergus Falls (Richard Crenna), who is determined to bring him back in. Harrison must find a way to survive incredible obstacles, solve a murder and prove his innocence.
It seems the only person in the world who believes Ryan is innocent is the beautiful but mysterious Cass Lake (played brilliantly by mysterious and beautiful MELINDA MCGRAW). Ryan can't help but fall in love with this sultry beauty, and Cass couldn't help but fall for Ryan the minute she heard him in concert. Sparks fly and safe sex ensues. But...does Cass really love Ryan? Is she telling the truth? Or is she setting him up for murder? Or is this just a good way to meet new guys? Questions that twist and turn in Ryan's head like a dreidel in a sandstorm.
