The story of Schneider vs. Bax revolves around two men, a contract killer and a writer, battling each other for survival. Schneider, the contract killer and a devoted family man, is offered a rush job in the morning of his birthday to liquidate Ramon Bax. Bax is a 50 year old writer living in his secluded cabin by the lake. What seems to be a simple assignment turns out to be much more than Schneider ever expected...
