Synopsis

Director Jill Sprecher's black comedy follows a down-on-his-luck insurance salesman who suddenly finds his life spiralling out of control. With his career on the slide and severe cash-flow problems, newly divorced salesman Mickey Prohaska (Greg Kinnear) is finding life tough in the wilds of rural Wisconsin. Fate seems to intervene when Mickey, whilst trying to sell a policy to eccentric retired farmer Gorvy Hauer (Alan Arkin), stumbles across a rare and valuable vintage violin in the old man's house. Seeing a chance to make a quick killing, Mickey sets about trying to prise the instrument from Gorvy's clutches, only to find his plans hijacked and his life in free fall when local ex-con Randy (Billy Crudup) gets wind of his scheme.
