STUDIO SYNOPSIS: When 22 year old drug dealer Chris
(Hirsch) has his stash stolen by his mother, he has to come up with six
thousand dollars quick or he's dead. Desperate, he turns to "Killer Joe"
(McConaughey) when he finds out that his mother's life insurance policy
is worth $50,000. Although Joe usually demands cash up front, he finds
himself willing to bend the rules in exchange for Chris' attractive
younger sister, Dottie (Temple), who will serve as sexual collateral
until the money comes in... if it ever does.
