PIERCING

Reed, a new dad, goes on a business trip. Instead of packing his clothes, he packs a murder kit along with a plan for the perfect murder. He rents out a hotel room where he intends to execute his plan of murdering an unsuspecting victim. Only then will he be able to satisfy his impulses and return to his family as a cleansed man. However, an orderly and well-planned murder takes a twist when Jackie, an alluring prostitute, arrives at his hotel room.
