The film opens with police investigating a crime scene littered with bodies. It then cuts to a week prior, where Casey (Catherine Annette) is being interviewed for a potential porn shoot with Devin (Clint Brink) and Josh (Lee Kholafai). She's assaulted and despite the attempts of fellow porn star Ashley Saint (Betsy Rue), the two women are overpowered. The men seem intent on raping both women, but a minor accident causes the actors to fall out of character and reveal that the entire scene is a setup. Ashley is later approached by Mike (Don McManus), who requests that she make a segment for the website "Lucky Bastard", which will show random men getting the chance to have sex with a porn star. Although initially against the idea, Ashley is reluctantly persuaded after she is shown a video of a shy and unassuming man named Dave (Jay Paulson).

The story takes place involving three different people who all work together in the same supermarket over the 24 hour period leading up to Christmas. Ronna (Sarah Polley) is broke and about to be evicted from her apartment. Despite having worked for 14 hours, she agrees to take her British co-worker Simon's (Desmond Askew) shift. While working, she's approached by two men, Adam (Scott Wolf) and Zack (Jay Mohr), who ask if she can come up with 20 hits of ecstasy, which they were hoping to buy from Simon. Realizing she can make some money from the deal, she goes to Simon's dealer Todd Gaines (Timothy Olyphant). Because she doesn't have enough money, Ronna has to leave her friend and co-worker Claire (Katie Holmes) with Todd until she makes her deal. Once she tries to make the deal, she grows suspicious when Burke (William Fichtner), a person she never met before and who is with Adam and Zack, presses her for the drugs. In a panic, she flushes the drugs down the toilet and manages to get out. Ronna then swaps the pills she flushed with aspirin pills she steals with the help of Mannie (Nathan Bexton), Ronna and Claire's friend (and also co-worker in the supermarket), who had swallowed two of the pills without knowing their strength. Ronna hands off the pills to Todd and she, Claire and Mannie make their way to a rave party. Todd soon realizes that he's been given fake pills and goes after Ronna. Mannie sees Todd coming and Ronna hides Mannie when he starts to become sick. In the parking lot of the party Todd confronts Ronna, but before he can shoot her a car runs her over and dumps her off the side of a small cliff, leaving her fate unknown.
