I enjoyed this plausible story more than many other flimsy flights of fantasy. The main character uses his wits and thinks on his feet, which leads to an enjoyable twist near the end. I'm curious whether the actress who played Frankie was a last minute fill-in for a scheduled actor who was a no-show at taping. Her acting was flat in comparison to the others, which made her easier to dislike as the antagonist. Even her microphone was in odd contrast to the others. Still, it was a good plot and the other actors' strong performances carried the day.

An urgent late-night phone call turns into a bigger job than expected for plumber Harvey Stillson. But he agrees to fix a leaky water main in the basement for a neighbor in anticipation of racking up a lot of overtime or, “golden time.” The only problem is that when Harvey locates the leak, he also finds a big plastic bag bulging with a mysterious white powder.

Excellent story! I thoroughly enjoyed every second of it!
