Carter will pay whatever Vinnie asks for his silence and has done for years. But now, when Vinnie summons Carter back to their childhood town where Vinnie is still living, he reveals he has gotten himself into trouble with the law with his latest love interest, Cecilia, and asks Carter to bail him out before the truth about their past comes to light.
This tragic-comedy explodes when a simple phone call threatens to undo years of blackmail and false identities. Loyalties run fierce or run completely out as Vinnie and Carter reunite in hopes of settling an old score. It becomes a mad chase in which Carter (with help from Cecilia) tries to recover the incriminating pictures, while Vinnie revisits the past and discovers that the evidence, has lost much of its inflammatory potential and as Carter loses control over Vinnie, he begins to disintegrate.
