Calvin Russel and Richie Glass don't know each other, but they have the same job: wait outside American Federal Bank...with the engine running. The problem is they've been recruited by two different crews intent on robbing the same bank, on the same day, at the same time.
When the bank heist goes sideways, the two young men--one a smart-ass gambling addict from Beverly Hills, the other a car-thief from Inglewood with a wife and five-year-old son--must come together to figure out what the hell happened, all as they try to make the score of a lifetime. It won't be easy with FBI Agents, LAPD Homicide Detectives, pissed-off street thugs, racist bikers, and a mysterious gangster all gunning for them.
