Actor John Person (Jon Favreau) is down on his luck and drowning in debt when his weird neighbor Neely (Bud Cort) comes to him with an odd proposition. Neely needs a big blue suitcase taken to a truck stop in the middle of nowhere and delivered to a man known only as Cowboy. Initially Person refuses, thinking the whole thing a joke, but eventually Neely convinces him with a combination of sufficient money to pay off Person's entire debt, and the threat of blackmail. He also gives him a gun to defend himself in the endeavour. After arriving at the truck stop in Baker, California, Person checks into the local motel where the clerk tells him he has just missed meeting Cowboy, who was there the previous day. Person settles in to wait for Cowboy to return and collect the mysterious suitcase, but things get progressively stranger as he gets mixed up with the locals and discovers that Neely and Cowboy may be involved in far worse things than he could have imagined. Also appearing in this movie are Sean Bean, Rachel Leigh Cook, Joey Lauren Adams, and Kelsey Grammer.
