But over the course of a long and increasingly violent night waiting in a seedy motel, the bag attracts the attention of a slew of shady charactersincluding femme fatale Rivka (Rebecca Da Costa), the sleazy motel manager (Crispin Glover), a one-eyed gangster (Sticky Fingaz), an undersized hit man (Martin Klebba) and a crooked cop (Dominic Purcell). As Jack awaits the arrival of Dragna, each of them will make a play for the package's unknown contents and Jack will do whatever it takes to hang on to his precious cargo.
