In a small town in Alaska, an outsider (Christopher Abbott
) who goes by the name of Elwood wanders into a local bar, where he kills three men having a friendly card game. Elwood, a professional hitman, takes money from the cash register before leaving.
Elwood then checks into a local hotel run by Sam (Jon Bernthal), then goes to collect his money from Lila (Imogene Poots), the woman who ordered the hit in order to knock off her husband. Unfortunately, Lila is less than pleased with Elwood's work because she didn't ask for the other two men to be killed in the process, one of whom was her friend's husband, leaving her a widow.
