After a casino siege goes horribly wrong and results in the death of a number of innocent people, a flashback describes what happened to each of the victims in the hours leading up to their deaths. Sheena (Catherine O'Hara) is wondering whether to turn up for a blind date; Brian (Stephen Rea) is caught up in reminiscences over his dead daughter; Jake (Joe Pantoliano) is facing exposure for a theft at work; and Connie (Sarah Polley), the daughter of a famous TV star, finally gets an audition for a show of her own.
