Tom, a novice thief who has come down with a serious case of the jitters, is waiting at a low-rent motel in the middle of nowhere, to meet his partner to split their proceeds and head to Mexico. While waiting, Tom meets Christine, a good-natured prostitute who explains to Tom her philosophy on life; everything in this world happens for a reason. Shortly aﬅer, Tom witnesses Christine’s murder. In his confused state of mind, Tom is convinced he was meant to see Christine’s murder and if he can bring the killer to justice, he will be forgiven for his own crimes. Through a little investigating, Tom comes to the conclusion that a low-level bookmaker named Louis is responsible for the murder. But, the police are not impressed with Tom’s deductive powers, leaving the thief to take law enforcement into his own hands.
