Lady in the Box | 2001
It's a dark night in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on the shore of one of the great lakes, and Jerry is bragging to best friend Chris that he's got a sexy new girlfriend who wants to experiment with handcuffs. Jerry's also just received his own boat, and business is going well at the bar he's a 'tender at. A strange, manic patron with a pocketful of twenties stays through last call and wins a load of cash from Jerry on a series of bets; then offers Jerry a chance to get all of his money back and more--with a catch. All Jerry has to do is take his boat out to the center of the lake and throw a trunk and it's mysterious contents overboard--no questions asked. His desire for money taking over, Jerry reluctantly agrees. That's when the real trouble starts. Jerry's about to get framed for a crime he didn't commit. Blood is all over his apartment and his girlfriend is missing. Jerry finds himself falling deeper and deeper inside a twisted scheme which he has to unravel before he can get free.
