Synopsis by Perry Seibert
Director Terry George's quirky crime comedy stars Brendan Fraser as Joe Maguire, an American running an antique store in an Irish town. He becomes wrapped up in a hostage situation inside the store when a young man who owes thousands to a local crime boss runs into the shop after robbing a local fishery, and Joe then comes into possession of evidence that will put the bad guy away. Meanwhile, Detective Weller (Colm Meaney) takes control of the hostage negotiations, and attempts to figure out what's going on as the situation grows more and more complicated.
