    • Synopsis
    • Marty is a bored temp at a mortgage office, out to get what he feels he deserves in life. He is a small-time con artist drifting from one scam to the next. When his latest ruse goes awry, mounting growing paranoia forces him to hide out in his co-worker's basement for a week. Marty’s anxiety is mixed with juvenile basement parties that eventually trigger him to flee to Detroit and spend his nights either at a derelict motel, or a place of luxury, depending on what’s in his pocket at the time. Marty’s misdirected paranoia reaches a nihilistic state. He is now quite literally a man willing to draw blood from those he sees as the bloodsuckers.
