The plot is laid with a contract kill, the work of a ruthless professional and a has-been hitman who soon learns that his own death is an integral part of the plan. Barely escaping his partner's fiery death trap, the hitman crawls to safety in an opulent hillside home. Now the hitman becomes a reluctant kidnapper, holding hostage in the house an insufferable modem art dealer and his loyal secretary. Complicating matters, the art dealer's half-sister arrives with a down-and-out screenwriter in tow.
Unaware that his plans have gone awry, the contract killer is concerned with more pressing problems. His money is at the crime scene and the crime scene is crawling with cops, particularly an overzealous vice cop trying to make it into homicide without much help from his burnt out partner.
The plot comes full circle as this unique assortment of characters is inexorably drawn together. For some it is love, for others money, and for an unfortunate few it has to be murder. But after 2 days in the Valley life will never be the same.
