*****SPOILERS***** Thinking that he left this dark event in his past behind him Albert Straka, Jamie Kennedy, couldn't have been more wrong. With a new start in life and being engaged to a caring and lovely girl Emily, Lorie Heuring, the last thing that Albert thought that would happen happened.
One morning two police detectives enter the antique shop where Albert is working and take him down to the police station for questioning for the murder of Frank Carreni, Michael Cavalieri, a person that Albert knew who now he would like to forget.
Frank's body was found at the bottom of a bridge outside the city. The police pathologist determined that he was murdered somewhere else and his body dumped there. Under questioning by Det.Lukas Black, Sam Elliott, Albert is handed a seasons greeting card that he sent to Frank's wife Sara, Carlton Elizabeth. What Albert wrote to her was a lot more personal that your average greeting card.
Albert not at all denying that he knew the Carreni's but he strangely seemed to be resigned to his fate, of being indited for Frank's murder.
It at first looked to the movie audience and even Det. Black who was interrogating him that even though he had no love for Frank he didn't have it in him to kill Frank or anyone else for that matter. Momentarily leaving the interrogation room to get a drink of water Albert overhears two policemen on the case saying that Sara killed herself by jumping off the same bridge, where her husband Frank was found, a few days later.
Albert quietly recounts the story about him and Sara and Frank and how he was in love and obsessed with Sara and how he resented and disliked Frank for how he abused her in his nightclub and at his home. Albert also talks about how he forced Sara to engage in all kinds of kinky sex that ironically in the end led to Frank's death. Albert recounts about that night when he got a frantic phone call from Sara that Frank was unconscious and possibly dead from one of those S&M sessions that he forced Sara to engage in. It was by answering that call from Sara that sealed Albert's fate in his going along with Sara's bazaar plan to make sure that Frank was really dead.
What Albert didn't know was that there was a lot more to what happened to Frank that night and it wasn't just Sara that had something to do with it. Film Noir thriller that is a lot deeper and darker then you would have first thought. Sam Elliott is very good as Det. Black who knows much more then what he lets Albert and the audience on to on what is really behind Frank Carreni's murder as well as his wife Sara's suicide and you seem to sense that as the movie slowly unwinds to it's surprising ending.
