Brief Synopsis

It's a time-honored urban ritual: Slip the cable guy fifty bucks and you'll get all the movie channels for free. But when Steven Kovacs moves into a new apartment, his Cable Guy is not like the others. He doesn't want your fifty bucks; all he wants is a friend... and he won't take no for an answer. Steven is about to learn that there's no such thing as free cable.
