A criminal is forced to become a hero in this action drama. Max Hopper (Dean Cain) is a successful burglar who has decided it's time to leave his life of crime behind him. But Hopper is lured into pulling one last heist when he learns about a valuable new computer chip being created by a leading-edge digital hardware firm. Realizing the prototype chip could be sold for a fortune, Hopper comes up with a clever plan to get past the building's security team by posing as a fireman. However, his scheme becomes unexpectedly perilous when a disgruntled employee really does set the building on fire, forcing Hopper to become a real firefighter to save his life, as well as those of the others trapped in the building. Firetrap also stars Richard Tyson, Mel Harris, Lori Petty, and Steven Williams.
