    • Synopsis
    • American jet-setter HARRY JOHNSON has everything going for him: a loving (long-distance) relationship, artistic talent, and a bottomless bank account. But despite his "lucky" circumstances, he can't seem to get it together.



      Desperate in love, he flies to Norway to be with his girlfriend, ANNE ANDERSEN, only to find himself touristing on his own as she is too busy with work and tending to her ill father. On the verge of feeling lonely, he meets a sexy, fun-loving, American, ZOEY GRAY.



      They hit it off and become instant activity buddies until one night, they hook up... on the same night that Anne's father passes away. Racked with guilt, Harry dumps Zoey.

      Three weeks later Harry proposes to Anne, but just as things start to look up for them, Zoey returns and blackmails Harry. Instead of telling Anne the truth, Harry tells another person he meets in a bar: a chess-playing, movie-loving, mafioso character, POLISH PETE. Pete tells Harry he'll "take care" of the situation...

      By the end, the lucky boy we see at the beginning is not so lucky after all.
