“When Paul’s daughter goes missing in the city where he is a wanted man, he has to go back into this past,” begins Miller. “Bit by bit, as we pull that string, it leads us to all these new dimensions, back into the sins of his past life as he seeks redemption for the mistakes he had made. It’s a genre story turned upside down on its head, and that really attracted me to the script.”
John Cusack plays Sam, an old friend or associate of Paul’s. When he comes back to town and gets into trouble he asks Sam for a favor because of their prior association,” begins Cusack, whose character is reminiscent of Rick in Casablanca. “It’s a troubled relationship because of Paul’s past.” Paul and Angela make their way through the luxurious lobby of the Sam’s Goldmine Casino and Hotel. In the presidential suite, Paul explains that his daughter has gotten herself in with a bad crowd and someone called The Pharmacy. Sam knows the lunatic and can’t get involved, much less even be seen with Paul, who understands and explains he just needs a safe place for Angela. As Paul leaves, Sam warns that a lot of their guys are now with Omar.
