An abrasive husband comes home to tell his wife that he has lost his job again. She reminds him that they are behind on their bills and suggests she get a job. He refuses. Instead, he comes up with a scheme to make a lot of money quick. Calling his coroner brother over, he tells them his plan to fake his own death and collect his half a million dollar life insurance policy. Making it look like a burglar has murdered him, all he has left to do is fly to Brazil, have plastic surgery to change his appearance, and wait for his wife to meet him. How could anything go wrong?
