Time & Tickets

Gary Johnson is a philosophy professor by day, lecturing his students on theories of morality. In his downtime he works with the police in surveillance vans as a tech-savvy staff investigator during undercover sting operations. When the temperamental officer who normally plays the role of hitman is placed on leave for misconduct, Gary is asked to step in because he vaguely resembles the ousted officer. To everyone’s surprise, Gary thrives impersonating the fabricated killers.

One day, Gary, in character as Ron, the charismatic lone-wolf hitman, meets would-be client Madison, who is desperate to get out of her abusive marriage. Sparks fly. Soon, he reaches out to Madison outside of their arrangement to start a decidedly non-professional but steamy fling. (source:
