Doug (Cris Lankenau) has washed out of school in forensics and moves back from Chicago to his home in Portland. The movie opens up (of course) in the rain. After awhile he takes a job at an ice factory, bagging ice cubes and loading them in trays for distribution. He befriends a co-worker who has been working there for a few years, Carlos (Raúl Castillo).
When Doug’s ex-girlfriend comes back to Portland from Chicago for a visit, they, along with Doug’s sister Gail (Trieste Kelly Dunn) begin to hang out together. Carlos has a part time gig as a dj, and they all meet up there one night. Carlos seems to be attracted to the ex (Rachel, played by Robyn Rikoon). Doug is such a slacker, he could care less. Then Rachel goes missing and Carlos is worried. Doug at first is blase (and irritated) with Carlos for waking him up. Note: Do not disturb slackers sleeping. But as the clues mount up, the begin to sleuth it out. Rachel is in trouble involving a mysterious briefcase full of cash and Doug and his sister come to the rescue.
It was kind of fun while it lasted, then it just stopped. Literally.
