Synopsis
Set in Tacoma Washington, a frustrated bellhop, Sonny skims the room service tabs and purloins the appoinments of vacant rooms to pay off his loan shark and support his disabled younger brother, a lumbering innocent with the mind of an eight-year-old. With not much of a life or future, Sonny happens upon a suicidally distraught hotel patron, and immediately falls in love with her. By doing so, Sonny has unwittingly stumbled into the illicit affairs of the underhanded hotel management and is at the mercy of the sadistic head of security, Cougar. First forced into the scheme and then sold out by his friend, Del, Sonny becomes swept up in a plot that could make him more money than ever known. But the town cop is on to him. By taking part, Sonny also risks his life and the lives of his brother and new love.
