Wanting the best for his family, Bulworth puts a contract upon his life so that he will be killed and his family will have money. As Bulworth waits for his life to be taken, he acts like a complete jerk and speaks rapper language. He does everything to offend people and every single thing is a joke to him. He has no respect for the people around him and he hates the position he is in right now. Bulworth has a long road to walk. However, some of the people he becomes close with along the way may have the tools to make this senator better.
