When the film begins, Tony (Jack Kelly) is working the pit crew at a race. It seems that hard luck Tony isn't racing any more and his brother has now stepped into the big leagues of racing. However, near the end of the race, the brother's car crashes and he's killed.
When Tony goes to his sister-in-law and nephew to check on them, she verbally attacks him--blaming him for her husband's death. And she's not the only one...he also blames himself. In fact, he's carrying so much guilt that he contracts with a friend to have himself murdered. Why? Because with his insurance policy, his beneficiary (his sister-in-law), she'll collect a nice settlement!
The killing isn't supposed to take place for several weeks. In the meantime, he spends time with his young nephew and the sister-in-law eventually apologizes and tells Tony she's glad he's been hanging around....she and the boy need him. Now he realizes he doesn't want to die...but how will he stop his own murder? He doesn't know WHO will be doing it or exactly when it will occur.
As my summary says, the plot idea is totally ridiculous. But, Kelly is a really good actor and the show is directed and written so well that I found I was able to suspend disbelief and just enjoy the show.
