Synopsis: Jimmy, a business-like young man, enters a room where a man, the accountant for a shadowy drug lord, is shackled. Over the next week, Jimmy systematically tortures the accountant, demanding information about missing funds. The accountant denies any knowledge. In flashbacks to six months before, we see Jimmy's joining a group of the drug lord's enforcers, surviving brutal hazing, getting his first assignment, and keeping his cool. We also learn that Jimmy has another identity, friends in high places, and a girlfriend unhappy about both his work and his changing personality. Can Jimmy hold on to his humanity as he carries out increasingly nightmarish orders?

- Thanks for hooking me up.

- Any time, bro. Any time.

- How's your back coming along?

- Very nice, very nice. Very happening.

I'm gonna unveil it next week, bro.

Wait till you see it, man.

Marcus is like... He's a magician, bro.

I think she's got one on her lower back

she wants to brag about.

- Hey, what's up?

- You tell me.

- Is he here yet?

- Brought him in last night.

- Did you see who brought him in?

- Nah, supposedly he brought him in himself,

- you know, the big guy?

- Ziggy?

When we woke up,

there was an envelope on the table.

And I will raise.

And he left instructions for you.

For me, huh?

So what's the game, baby?

Who's taking who to dinner?

The Valium chip. Light blue.

Good color, man. I will see that.

I will raise 20 milligrams, baby.

Let's get high.

Thank God.

Where am I?

What is this place?

How long have I been here?

Who are you?

Whoever you are,

please help me.

Listen. I need your... I need your help.

Do you hear me?

Do you know how long I've been here?

What're you doing?

Please, please, whoever you are, help me.

I don't know what's going on,

but obviously this is...

This is some kind of mistake.

I mean, I was on my way to New York.

My name is Jimmy Vaughn.

Do I know you?

When I come into the room,

I speak and you listen.


I question and you answer.

Nod if you understand the rules.

Ziggy has asked me to take care of this.

And believe me,

the more time that we spend here,

the more fun it'll be for me,

and the less fun it'll be for you.

Do you understand that?

So you were Ziggy's accountant.

Is that correct?

And you stole $10 million from him,

is that right?


Look at me, Mr. Green.

Mr. Green, I'm gonna leave you

to think about that answer.

But before I do,

you'll realize that sitting is a luxury

you don't have anymore.

I'll see you soon.

That's an unusual name.

How do you pronounce it?


Well, I can't offer much.

I mean, with a high school equivalency

and military service,

would you consider security somewhere?

Pays like, $10 an hour.

I could maybe get you $12.

I was told to wait in line

specifically to talk to you.

Why me?

'Cause there's only one man

I'd like to work for, Mr. Gnoww.

I don't know what you're talking about.


I asked you nicely,

and now I'm gonna demand

that you tell me where to go,

or I'm gonna blow your brains out.

He doesn't respect men who carry guns.

That's why I brought this.

Now I'm gonna shove

this in your fucking mouth,

and blow your brains out,

or you're gonna tell me

where I can find him.


I pull this pin and it's over.

Take a large coffee.

That's $2.25.

This is horrible. I'm not paying for it.

Let me talk to your manager.

- Can I help you?

- I can't drink this.

What's the problem?

The coffee's way too wet.

Too wet?

Let me take you in the back.

Perhaps you prefer

some of our dry coffee blends.

So what's your name?

Jimmy Vaughn.

Well, Jimmy, our dry coffee

is right through here.

The key to making dry coffee

is the dry beans.

And dry beans

comes from drought-inflicted areas.

It's a difficult thing

to find such a happy medium

between the moisture needed

to grow beans,

and the absolute dry heat

truly needed to get dry coffee.

I am no novice to this concept.

I've traveled to the forests myself

in pursuit of the evasive, perfect blend.

You have to look everywhere for the beans.

In an animal's armpits, stomach, legs.

And sometimes

it's stuck in a tree shaft.

So you have to stick your hand inside

and feel around.

This procedure may feel

a little uncomfortable.
