The Usual Suspects - Movie Synopsis & Plot
A boat, supposedly carrying $91 million in cocaine, blows apart, leaving twenty-eight dead. There are only two survivors: A Hungarian gangster and crippled con-man Roger "Verbal" Kint. The Hungarian is badly burned and restricted to a hospital bed where the police immediately begin to question him. The only thing they can understand is the name Keyser Soze.
Meanwhile, U.S. Customs Special Agent David Kujan is interrogating Verbal. Granted complete immunity, Verbal has no restraints and no reason to help them. But he likes to talk and begins to fill in the gaps that he left in his original statement. He tells how it started six weeks earlier in a police lineup, where he and four other known gangsters were accused of hijacking an arms vehicle. Without any substantial evidence, they are only held overnight, but their uniting starts a new wave of revenge.
Horrified by the indecency of the corrupt cops in the city, the five men embark to set things straight and enact revenge. But their escapades soon leads to a much more profitable venue... A heist that could win them $91 million. And behind it all is Keyser Soze, a mythical figure of death and revenge, so feared by the underworld that no one dares go against him. Bounding each of the men with debts, Soze forces the men to do the job, even if it means suicide.
As the hospitalized Hungarian withers away, a forensic artist quickly works to finish a sketch of Keyser Soze, and Kujan begins to break the shield surrounding Verbal, and gets closer to figuring out the identity of Soze. But which side is playing which?
