After years of borrowing money from local crime bosses, two film executives discover that they have overstretched their privileges.

Using the ailing star of their latest film, the filmmakers concoct an elaborate insurance fraud case to secure the funds to pay off their debts – until their target begins to turn the tables on them. Directed by George Gallo; co-starring Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, and Emile Hirsch.
