Summary: When Slevin Kelevra (Josh Hartnett) headed to New York to visit his friend Nick Fisher, little did he know what awaits him. First he gets mugged, loses his wallet and IDs, and gets his nose broken. Second, Nick is nowhere to be found and there is no sign as to where he may be. Third, two gangs of mobsters looking for Nick confuse Slevin for him and drag him, one at a time, to see their feuding bosses, The Boss (Morgan Freeman) and The Rabbi (Ben Kingsley). Seems that Nick is in deep trouble. He owes The Boss $96,000 and The Rabbi $33,000 both from gambling bets. Slevin’s efforts to explain the case of mistaken identity are in vain. The Boss offers him a chance to wipe out his debts by killing The Rabbi’s son. The Rabbi himself offers to forgive the debt as well in return for him killing The Boss. To make things even more complicated, Mr. Smith (Bruce Willis) a high profile hired assassin seems to be pulling the strings behind the scenes on both sides. And finally there is detective Brikowski (Stanley Tucci) that is running 24 hour surveillance on both gangs and subsequently Slevin. The only bright side amidst all this chaos is Lindsey (Lucy Liu), Nick’s neighbor and the city coroner, who takes an immediate liking to Slevin. She also loves playing detective and decides to investigate Nick’s disappearance.
