A world-weary salesman begins a strange friendship with a flamboyant hitman after crossing paths with him at a Mexican bar.

ABSTRACT
Traveling salesman Danny Wright has a lot on his plate, contending with the loss of his child and steady employment plus a possible divorce as he heads to Mexico City for a promising sales pitch. A conversation with bombastic fellow foreigner Julian Noble at a hotel bar leads Julian to tell Danny that he is a hitman working for two powerful crime lords, a revelation that sees Julian whisking his new friend away on a bizarre journey to stage a hit poised to place him back in the good graces of his hot-tempered employers.
