Synopsis: Kyle and Sarah Miller have it all: a huge gated house on the water, fancy cars, and the potential for romance in their relationship. He's just back from a business trip (he brokers diamonds) and their teen daughter Avery is sneaking out to a party, when four thugs in security uniforms and ski masks stage a home invasion. They want what's in the safe: cash and diamonds. Kyle stalls them, trying to negotiate for Sarah's freedom. Over the next few hours, the back stories of the four robbers (two brothers, a girlfriend, and the representative of a local drug kingpin) as well as the fault lines in Kyle and Sarah's marriage come into play. Is there room here for heroism?

I don't understand why we

can 't continue construction.

We could become partners.

Well, If you finish it, we can sell it.

You're being unreasonable.

Look, you're bleeding us dry!

Don't twist. Everyone knows real

estate 's in trouble. Come on!

We sell, everybody wins.

I-I'll get you

some money.

No, don't hang up.


Mr. Kaplan,

Kyle Miller again.

Yeah, hi. I'm calling about the

golconda diamond that we discussed.

Well, I have a buyer.

I know we haven't done business before

but I assure you I can be

an asset to your company.

Let me show you what I

can do with this stone.

No, I won't take commission. What do you have to lose?

It's my contact and my risk.

I guarantee it's 100% reliable.

If this goes upside down,

it's on me, okay?

Hang up. Hang up.

I'm calling him now. Thanks.

Emile Strewart?

Kyle Miller. How are you?

Hey, Mom, can I go to a party?

Come on, Avery. Not tonight.


It's at this guy Jake's house.

Everyone's going.

Who's everyone?

Friends from school.

Why are you being so vague about it?

I'm not. Hang on.

I'm getting water-boarded.

Please? It's

no big thing.

Yeah? Well, if

it's no big thing,

why can't you tell me who

you're going with? Hm?

So, that little daydream we discussed.

Yes, the flawless one.

Well, it turns out it could

be yours provided that, uh...

Just a minute.

Provided that you come up

with a less insulting number.

No, you're gonna have to do a

little bit better than that, Emile,

or my seller's gonna walk.

It's just a party.

With Kendra?

Why do you have such a

problem with Kendra?

Avery, I just thought we could have dinner at

home tonight as a family. Your Dad's back.

I thought it'd be nice.

I don't wanna have dinner.

I wanna go to a party.

Well, I said no.

Emile. Emile.

Fine, I'll ask Dad.

Okay. Ask him.

Emile, Stafford's offering two

percent above your price.

Yes! That Stafford.

Carl Stafford.

Mom's being arbitrary and inflexible.

Oh, come on.

I need hugs.

What difference does it make if

Carl said it or he didn't say it?

The point is you're

getting a damn good rock.

Uh, just a minute.

Did you wear that to school?

Can I go to a friend's party?


I have to go with your mother on this.

No! I wanna

meet with you.

You don't know what we

we're talking about.

Yes. We were

talking about Kendra.

That means boys, probably older,

and that is every father's worst nightmare.

I'm sorry, Sweetie.

Yes, yes. I'm back.

No, tonight is fine.

Uh, I could be there

in 30,45 with traffic.

Whatever you two are going through

treating me like a child,

isn't gonna make anything any better.

Are we going through something?

I don't know.

Are we?

Look, I'm sorry about all this.

It's just...

It's just a bit crazy

here at the office today.

Yes. Well, I don't think

you're really hearing me.

Emile, this is the flawless.

It's whiter than the

snow on Mount Fuji.

Are you cartooning me?

This is a 2A diamond

so clear you will weep.

You will just weep.

I mean, in any other circumstance

a four karat golconda

is 1.5 million dollars.

I mean, this is a steal.

I'm inviting you to steal from me.

Yes, cash.

This is a basement price.

I'm not even taking a commission.

No, it has to be cash.

Thank you. Thank you, Emile.

I'm glad we could come to an understanding.

And you won't be

disappointed. Good-bye.


I'm on the phone.

I just wondered if you wanted

something to eat before you go out.

Uh, no, I'll pick something up.

Please don't say it's all because you

love me and you're worried about me.

Honey, you have to eat something.
