In this noir thriller, Silas Cooper stars as Patrick, a milquetoast, white-collar banker who has more than a few startling secrets. For years, Patrick has been embezzling funds from the bank where he's employed, then using the money to finance his hobby of collecting expensive vintage costumes from movies. Patrick's "dealer" is restaurant owner Gaz (Joseph Pilato), a fence who obtains most of the pieces illegally. In moments of solitude, Patrick enjoys wearing the original fashions, but his obsession backfires one night when he witnesses a murder from his window. Though he wants to report the perpetrator to the police, Patrick fears that he'll be exposed as a criminal. When the killer -- stick-up artist Zack (Rupert Green) -- and his sexy girlfriend Deena (Jennifer Starr) move into the neighborhood, Patrick is powerfully attracted to the manipulative Deena, and he becomes involved in the couple's criminal activities. Meanwhile, Gaz schemes to steal back Patrick's valuable secret wardrobe. Writer-director Norman Gerard teamed again with actress Jennifer Starr for another mystery, The Murder in China Basin (1999).
