SYNOPSIS : A middle-aged lawyer works and lives alone in a dreary apartment. One cold and rainy day, a disheveled man breaks in and entrusts him with a small package. The following day, the lawyer's apartment is ransacked and he must fight off threats to hand over the package. Neither his girlfriend nor his best friend can offer much help in solving the mystery. His best friend also happens to be a drug addict with a tendency to speak to an imaginary friend. The lawyer continues to be plagued with break-ins and unwelcome visitors, but he avoids attempts to corrupt him. When his girlfriend is stabbed to death, the lawyer's thirst for revenge will lead him to the greediest man of all.
