Summary: Three roommates believe they've found the perfect fourth person to share their home. But almost immediately after moving in they find him dead in his bedroom from a massive drug overdose. Even stranger, they find a suitcase full of money under his bed. They are faced with the moral dilemma of whether to call the police and turn in the cash or dispose of the body and keep the money for themselves. They decide to keep the money, but then find themselves consumed with violent paranoia toward each other. (MGM)
