When two Eastern European criminals come to New York City, one of them steals a video camera and starts to film all of their activities. When they learn how the American media can make a remorseless killer look like the victim and in turn make them rich, they target a media-savvy NYPD homicide detective and a media-naive NYFD fire marshal (both happen to be the cops investigating their criminal activites). Along the way, they film everything they do in order to sell their video to a local tabloid TV show.
