"Best Laid Plans" begins innocently enough with a late-night get-together between two old college friends over drinks. Bryce (Josh Brolin), good-looking and living a charmed existence, has returned home for a visit to Tropico, a town in the middle of nowhere. Nick, a home-town boy who dropped out of college due to his father' illness, is now left with nothing and working at a dead-end job at a local recycling plant.

Into the middle of this dubious exercise of Auld Lang Syne walks Lissa (Reese Witherspoon), an alluring young girl who sits down at the bar, crosses her legs and zeroes in on Bryce. She laughs when he spills his drink, Bryce invites her to join them and with a minimum of formalities the reunion adjourns and Bryce takes Lissa back to his place.

Later that evening, Nick gets a desperate phone call from Bryce. Arriving at the luxurious pad where Bryce is house-sitting, Nick finds himself in the middle of a situation that is already spiraling out of control. The girl, it turns out, was underage, Bryce was drunk and things got out of hand. When she threatened to call the cops, things got even more extreme. In fact, he reveals, she's still in the house. Nick is the only person Bryce can turn to. Will his old friend help him avoid ruin and prison? What will Nick's help cost Bryce? Even more important to Nick, what will helping Bryce cost him? A suspense-thriller about difficult situations and desperate measures.
