The four kidnappers Avery (Henry Thomas), Max (Sean Patrick Flanery), T.K. (Jeremy Sisto) and Brett (Jay Mohr) come from very wealthy families and do not want money for his life. Instead, they want to secure the release of Avery's sister Lisa (Laura Harris), who has been taken by professional kidnappers. Because one of Lisa's fingers has been cut off, T.K., a pre-med student, deftly relieves Carlo (Christopher Walken) of one of his digits. Unfortunately, T.K. is not prepared to stem the resulting bleeding, exaccerbated by the captive's alcoholism, and Carlo begins to slowly bleed to death. Still, he agrees to use his underworld connections to find the girl and raise the ransom money. Just for show, Carlo has his number-one thug Lono (Denis Leary) head out to brutally persuade Carlo's powerful cronies to find the girl's location. Deep down, Carlo suspects that one of his captors is Lisa's real kidnapper. When the boys' pal Ira (Johnny Galecki), whose parents own the summer house, shows up to play poker, he is shocked by what he sees. Mostly he worries that his parents will be angry that the crime boss bled on their floors and furniture. While Lono, who constantly complains about his domineering wife, continues his search, Carlo, though getting weaker, starts to manipulate his captor's minds in hopes of creating dissension and an opportunity for escape. Tightly woven and fast paced, this crime thriller is liberally laced with black humor.
