This Canadian black-and-white film is based on David Blackwood's stage play of the same name, and is set in a Midwestern U.S. diner in the 1950s. It is director James Purcell's first film. Eddie (Peter Outerbridge) has "Fools Die Fast" tattooed on his hands, and is enjoying his diner food and a little flirtation with Rhonda (Kate Greenhouse), his waitress. When Rhonda's boss, Vern, accuses her of stealing money from the till. Eddie reacts to this with unusual force, tying Vern up and filming everything on a home movie camera. This delicate situation grows even more tense when Vern begins to talk about Rhonda's history in porn films.
