Murder is in the eye of the betrayer. In the early morning hours on a deserted Los Angeles beach, Dustin, a tuxedo dressed, bottle clutching film executive awakens alongside the body of a dead woman. Minnow, a homeless man, approaches Dustin and tells him that he witnessed him kill the girl, but he'll take care of it if Dustin agrees to "take care of him". Minnow shows up at Dustin's home and begins taking over. He wants everything that Dustin has, including his girlfriend Darcy.
