Every second counts when Paul Walker stars in the Hurricane Katrina thriller Hours about one father’s desperate quest to save his newborn daughter. Génesis Rodriguez, Nancy Nave, Shane Jacobsen, TJ Hassan, Lena Clark and Judd Lormand co-star. Eric Heisserer, the writer of The Thing, Final Destination 5 and The Nightmare on Elm Street, wrote the screenplay and makes his directorial debut. The film, which was one of Walker's last projects, first premiered on March 10, 2013 at the South by Southwest Film Festival and went on general release on December 13, 2013, by which time Walker had passed away (November 30, 2013).
August 29, 2005 was supposed to be the happiest day for Nolan Hayes and his pregnant wife Abigail, who has just gone into early labor. However tragically his wife dies while giving birth and their premature daughter born five weeks early is put on a ventilator until she can breathe on her own. Meanwhile Hurricane Katrina strikes and ravages the hospital, plunging it into darkness and forcing an evacuation. Told to stay with his daughter and wait for a transfer by ambulance, the rising floodwaters and power outages leave them stranded with no help in sight. As Nolan faces one life-and-death decision after another to keep his daughter alive, each second, minute becomes unimaginable hours.
