"Someone's taking the fall."

Insurance agent Mickey Prohaska (Greg Kinnear) is trying to kick start his business with a view to reuniting with his estranged wife (Lea Thompson). This master of salesmanship is looking for a sucker willing to believe his spin. He finds one, an unsuspecting lonely, retired farmer (Alan Arkin), who is sitting on something much bigger than an insurance commission.

But Mickey’s attempt to con the old man goes awry when a nosy, unstable locksmith (Billy Crudup) (also a paranoid ex-con with a explosive temper) ups the stakes. Mickey finds himself cornered and is now faced with danger, deceit and double-crossing.

Ultimately THIN ICE reaches a breaking point that no one, least of all Mickey Prohaska, could have ever seen coming.
