Frankie (Dennis Hopper) is a leg man for the mob, and works for Sal (Michael Madsen) and his sidekick, Vic (Dayton Callie). Frankie goes to the set of a porno one day, directed by his friend Joey (Kiefer Sutherland), a NYU film school graduate who owes Sal money. Frankie immediately becomes infatuated with Margaret (Daryl Hannah), a former junkie who wants to become a serious actress.
