Psychopath Frank Moore has a diabolical plan. To Finance it he must commit a major robbery. He has now found the key to its success. Using databases, Frank Moore has found his scapegoat, his look-alike, John Kirk, a close-enough double who lives in the harbor city of San Pedro.
John Kirk wants to get out of San Pedro and leave his troublesome relationships behind. His live-in sweetheart is fed-up with his station in life and has become unfaithful, his mother finds solace from the death of Kirk’s father by embracing the bottle, and Kirk’s boss at the auto shop is an overbearing, cheap son of a bitch.
These troubles fall by the wayside when Frank Moore switches their identities and fingerprints in government databases. An act that will send the innocent John Kirk through 48-hours of betrayal, violence and murder.
