Set entirely in a seedy Michigan motel room, Vince (Hawke) meets with an old high school classmate, Johnny (Leonard), who had stolen his then-girlfriend, Amy (Thurman). Still harboring anger and resentment, the two argue all night while Vince captures their confrontation on tape. As the fight reaches a fever pitch, Amy shows up to tell her side of their story.
