A man is bound to a chair with a sack over his head. He has to be held captive for two days. His captors are told not to speak to him under any circumstances. However, when the sack comes off, the bound man begins to manipulate and psychologically dissect the people holding him, turning them slowly against each other. A hyper naturalistic crime noir set in late 70s Brooklyn, which explores human psychology and addiction, loosely based on The Rolling Stones song of the same name.
