married and living in France. When a friend asks for his help with a murder, Ripley persuades a terminally ill family man (Scott)
to perform the hit in exchange for a large sum of money that would provide for his future widow and child. He agrees, unaware that
he is simply a pawn in Ripley's intricate game of lies, revenge and murder.
