The Problem: Small-time drug dealer Chris Smith (Emile Hirsch) has had his entire stash stolen by his very own mother and he needs cash fast.
The Solution: His mother’s $50,000 life insurance policy would more than cover it.
The Problem: She needs to be dead.
The Solution: Enter Detective Joe Cooper, a charming, sultry Southern gentleman who also happens to be a deadly contract killer. He’ll happily dispose of an unwanted family member – if you pay him enough.
Chris agrees to offer up his sweet, attractive younger sister, Dottie, as sexual collateral in exchange for Joe’s services until he receives the insurance money and it all seems so simple.
And it turns out to be anything but . . .
