Two small-time scumbags let greed get them in way over their heads in this taut and genuinely suspenseful actioner. Pete Gulley and his partner A.J. Railey are petty con artists who barely get by. At one point, the two dupe visitors into buying bogus cocaine. Later they quietly catch a real drug dealer preparing to send a box full of drugs at the post-office. The opportunistic Gulley and Railey pull a hasty switcheroo and send those drugs to the people they sold the phony ones to in Virginia. They then head for that place to wait for the lucrative box. Trouble arises when Lynn suddenly shows up to the Virginia house looking for her lover. Suddenly all three find themselves caught up in a complex psychological game during which each of them plays cruel captor and captured victim.
