His last chance for glory is a script optioned from a hungry young writer. So when the writer tells Sonny he has made a deal with a hot young studio executive, cutting the older man out, Sonny is enraged. He vows to exercise his option before it expires in seventy-two hours.
He struggles to come up with the $50,000 to purchase the script and wrest control from Black, but has no more favours to call in and is reduced to desperate measures. In desperation he approaches an Armenian loan shark and becomes entangled in a dangerous web of intrigue involving an ex-cop turned gun-for-hire who agrees to burn down Sonny's daughter's restaurant.
In return, her husband will collect on the insurance money and help Sonny repay the Armenian to buy the script. As the plan becomes more complicated, Sonny begins to realise the depths he has gone to for an ephemeral dream.
