What Is the Story of A Behanding in Spokane?
As this black comedy begins, Carmichael, a man who is missing his left hand, settles into a shabby hotel room. A couple of young con artists have promised to sell him what they claim is his missing hand. Meanwhile, a hotel clerk keeps popping in and saying things seemingly designed to antagonize the other three characters. It's impossible to say any more about the plot without giving away some of the surprises built into Martin McDonagh's clever script.
