Oil billionaire Happer sends Mac to a remote Scotish villiage to secure the property rights for an oil refinery they want to build. Mac teams up with Danny and starts the negotiations, the locals are keen to get their hands on the 'Silver Dollar' and can't believe their luck. However a local hermit and beach scavenger, Ben Knox, lives in a shack on the crucial beach which he also owns. Happer is more interested in the Northern Lights and Danny in a surreal girl with webbed feet, Marina. Mac is used to a Houston office with fax machines but is forced to negotiate on Bens terms.

Mac's apartment building in Houston is The Willowick located at 2200 Willowick Road. When he walks outside at the end of the film, you can initially see past River Oaks to Downtown in the distance, followed by Lamar Tower, a set of buildings in Greenway Plaza and the AT&T building further down Willowick. While the film portrays the location as being heavily urban, in reality it was and remains mostly residential. See more
