Jack, a career criminal, is offered a lot of money by the legendary crime boss Dragna to complete a simple but unusual job -- to retrieve a bag and go to room 13 in a remote seedy Bayou motel to await his arrival. He is warned to never open the bag and look inside because it contains death. However once Jack gets there, he finds that there are a host of shady characters that are also after the bag. Soon Jack crosses paths with a stunning woman named Rivka and their lives suddenly become physically and emotionally entangled on a dangerous collision course. When Dragna finally arrives, there are sudden and extreme consequences for all.
