Synopsis:
Daniel Beckett (Justin Theroux) is the black sheep son of wealthy art dealer Jack Beckett. He and his girlfriend, Suzanne (Alyssa Milano), are on their way to Thanksgiving dinner at his parents' estate, "their own little Utopia". When they arrive Daniel and Suzanne find his family waiting eagerly. At dinner Suzanne learns about the family history. Daniel explains how his deceased older brother, John, was forced to join the family business and their father crushed his independent, artistic spirit. After dinner, Daniel's father tells him he must join the family business or be cut off from the family fortune. Unable to cope, Daniel takes Suzanne down to his private haven when...
screams and gunfire erupt from above. A band of murderous art thieves, led by viscous art expert Jim (Ice T), have entered the house. They move past priceless pieces of art as they systematically kill Daniel's family. Knowing a premature move means certain death, Daniel and Suzanne are forced to hide and pray for survival. When the murderers discover the basement, Daniel and Suzanne decide to take the offensive and fight back. They find themselves playing a spine-tingling game of cat and mouse...one by one the killers fall prey to Daniel and Suzanne. In a twist that proves blood isn't thicker than water, "Below Utopia", explodes into a world of intimate deceit and psychological instability. The riveting conclusion paints a portrait of a family whose ties not only bind them together, hut strangle them to death.
