Plot  In December 1976, a financially strapped couple, Norma (Cameron Diaz) and Arthur Lewis (James Marsden) find a package on their doorstep. Inside is a locked wooden box, with a transparent dome top and large red button visible underneath. An accompanying note reads: "Mr. Steward will call upon you at 5:00 pm", which is the next day. They leave it in the kitchen.

At 5 p.m. the next day, Mr. Steward (Frank Langella), a mysterious man with the left side of his face torn off, arrives to deliver a key to the box. He tells Norma that if the button is pushed, he'll give her $1 million. However, someone she does not know, somewhere in the world, will die. Arthur, a NASA engineer, disassembles the box to find only a button and nothing under it.

Later, Norma and Arthur have ethical and moral arguments about pushing the button, wondering whether a young and ambitious, or old and fragile person will die. Norma decides to push the button. Miles away, a man has simultaneously killed...
