Elias plays Sonny, a frustrated and
lonely bellhop, pushing 30 and employed eight years at
the lackluster Stillwell Hotel. He works side-by-side,
day-in and day out with Billy (Haing S. Ngor). Bridled
by the responsibility of supporting and caring for
Leroy, his disabled brother, Sonny has reached a point
where he must take a good look at himself, assess his
situation and either make a change or resign himself to
his tedious, pitiful life.
Delivering room service one night,
Sonny finds Monique, a beautiful but distraught woman.
Within a matter of moments, he has served her dinner,
saved her life and fallen in love with her. By doing so,
Sonny has unwittingly stumbled into the illicit affairs
of the underhanded hotel management and is at the mercy
of the sadistic head of security, Cougar (Kevin J.
First forced into the scheme and
the sold out by his friend Del, Sonny becomes swept up
in a plot that could make him more money than he's ever
known. But the town cop (William H. Macy) is on to him.
BY taking part, Sonny also risks his life and the lives
of his brother and new love.
