MAGGIE is a troubled young woman at the end of her rope. Desperate to return to her native Ireland, she meets with a mysterious and vaguely sinister older man who offers to pay her plane fare back to Ireland in exchange for one last job: she must lure a young iron worker to a deserted Coney Island street.
