Performers, Cast and Crew:
8 mm: Nicholas Cage plays Tom Welles, a straightlaced surveillance specialist. His innocent, naive world begins to unravel when he is hired by the widow of an industrialist to investigate what she has shockingly discovered in her late husband's safe. It appears to be a snuff film showing a young girl being murdered. In order to discover the truth, Tom must enter the city's seedy underworld, guided by porn-store clerk Max California (Joaquim Phoenix, LADDER 49).
8mm 2: David (Johnathan Schaech, SUZANNE'S DIARY FOR NICHOLAS) is a young politician with a promising career and a beautiful fiancée, Tish (Lori Heuring, RUNAWAY JURY). But when the young couple engages in a ménage-à-trois with a gorgeous model (Zita Görög, UNDERWORLD), they stand to lose everything, as an unknown extortionist has evidence of David's indiscretion. As the blackmailer pumps David for exorbitant sums, the ambitious young man enters the seedy realm of Budapest's porn world, trying to track down his tormenter. But when David is kidnapped, he stands to lose more than just his career, and it's up to Tish to find him before he forfeits his life as well.
