Cunning criminal mind Frank Salazar thinks he's planned the perfect heist. He's chosen his target, set up a hideout that's police-proof and contracted four of the best crooks in the business to be his partners in crime: Ray Forgy, a hot-head who can hot-wire any car around; Carlos Barrios, a small-time thief with a million dollar wardrobe; Max Green, an explosives expert with less than 20-20 eyesight; and nimble-fingered safecracker Nick Bartkowski. When the four strangers arrive, unsure why Frank had summoned them to a small town, they find their fearless leader is nowhere to be found. Cooped up together, and unaware that Salazar has actually been arrested by two dogged New Jersey cops, it soon becomes clear that the less than loyal troupe has only two things in common: they all love money and can't stand each other, a combination that might mean goodbye to a two million dollar payday
