When he can’t come up with money for a poker game, he sneaks into the back of a tattoo parlor, kills the owner and takes his money. Frank wins very big that night, but a small little dot appears on his chest. Day by day, it gets bigger and bigger and forms into a tattoo. The tattoo then starts to spread all over his body and he has to go into seclusion. Can Frank get the help he needs before time runs out?
