It’s Schneider’s birthday. His boss orders him to take on an assignment: he must kill Bax, a novelist who lives in a lakeside cottage. Begrudgingly, Schneider goes through the motions, but a series of complications threaten to make him late to his own birthday party – including the fact that Bax is also tasked to kill Schneider. What else can go wrong? The actor-writer-director of the wicked suburban fable Borgman (38th) returns with a scathingly dark and funny film about the workaday life of contract killers.
