Soap opera author Matthew Stoddard has written a screenplay about a terminally ill man who hires a hit man to kill him and then finds out he was misdiagnosed. Matt’s agent and best friend, Greg, thinks the plot is not feasible so Matt contacts a gangster and arranges for an incognito hit man to join them at a dinner party in the country to prove his point. Circumstances place a real hit man among the guests and the action accelerates as they try to find out who it is before the deadline.
