Jack Daniel is skating by in life on his good looks and natural charm, but heavy drinking and gambling are starting to take a toll on his relationships and talents. Until now he's managed to hustle enough playing poker and taking odd jobs to keep himself from hitting rock bottom, but debts and supporting his ex-wife Gina and young daughter Stephanie have begun to wear him down. To make things even worse, he owes money to bookie Paulie Trunks, a guy you don't want to disappoint. Paulie send Carl, his main guy, to pay Jack a visit at his motel and remind him how long he has to find what he owes. A few kicks and punches later from Carl and his team leave Jack knowing where he stands.
