Synopsis: (Taken from the movie's promotional materials)

Wound tight and cocky, Jimmy Starks (Guy Pearce) is a smooth-talking salesman certain heÕs on the verge of a big break. Even when his car stalls in the middle of nowhere, a roadside soothsayer (J.K. Simmons) assures him a windfall is on its way. But although Jimmy should be happy when his boss suddenly agrees to financially back his business venture, he starts to become paranoid instead.

As his girlfriend Deirdre (Piper Perabo) and his best friend/ business partner Ed (William Fichtner) watch him slowly come unwound, Jimmy wonders if a past betrayal of his friend, newly paroled Vince (Shea Whigham), could be catching up to him. And, as the weather turns cold, Jimmy canÕt help but fear the mysterious seerÕs other prediction . . . that theyÕll be no tomorrow after the first snow.
