Windfall Plot: What’s it about?
A tech billionaire and his wife arrive at their magnificent vacation home only to discover it is being robbed by a robber. When they realize that the thief wants money as well as a personal grudge against the billionaire, the situation becomes more complicated. “You have everything and I have nothing,” the robber can be heard saying in the trailer. “You need to get close to him,” Plemons’ character tells Collins. “Do whatever it takes, that’s it.”
When talking about her role, Collins said in a statement, “The story really exposes all three of us. We’re all flawed, and the story showcases and starts to unearth how those flaws come about and that none of us are innocent. And I feel like it is about choice and the choices we make and the choices we don’t make and how that does set you off on a very specific path.” (via EW)
The trailer ends with Collins’ character telling one of the men, “You’re not a killer. What you think you have to do next… Please don’t cross that line.”
