Overview
Stage a bonus kidnapping, collect the ransom, take 10% off the top and have a nice life, see ya later. They told Harry Barber the plan would run like clockwork. But it's hapless Harry who's running out of time.

Woody Harrelson is Harry, a Florida drifter who goes from perpetrator to patsy when lured into an abduction scam proposed by a mysterious blonde. Director Volker Schlondorff (The Tin Drum, The Handmaid's Tale) steadily raises the stakes as Harry scrambles to untangle a mystery involving three women (Elisabeth Shue, Gina Gershon, Chloe Sevigny), false identities, cold corpses and a string of clues that set him up for a very hard fall.
