As a favor to his best friend Theo, Miami lawyer Jack Swytek reluctantly agrees to represent Tatum Knight, Theo's brother. Tatum is a thug-a hit man who claims he's gone straight. Tatum tells Jack that a woman named Sally Fenning hired him to kill her but he swears he refused the job. Now Sally is dead and she's named Tatum in her will, along with five other people, all of whom she had reason to hate. The catch is, the only one who will inherit the $46 million is the last one standing. Suddenly people are dying, and Jack has to find out if his client is an innocent man or a killer.
