Struggling actor John Person (Jon Favreau) is hopelessly mired in debt. But things start to look up -- or do they? -- when a strange man (Bud Cort) extends an offer that could solve all his financial woes. All he has to do is deliver a blue suitcase to a cowboy (Sean Bean) in the small California desert town of Baker. Once there, however, John discovers he's become part of a situation that's way over his head.
