After a botched robbery attempt five years ago, Ricky went to jail for his brother Rafael and his buddy Latif. Now that he is back out of jail, Latif wants to show his gratitude: He says he has a sure-fire scheme to get rich quick. Ricky could use the money to set up his new life. Ricky hesitates at first, but then agrees. Complications arise as soon as preparations start. Ricky is forced to take Rafael aboard, whom he really wanted to keep out of trouble. Things keep going awry, especially in the form of hard-up police woman Diana, who is in need of cash and develops considerable criminal energy of her own trying to foil the boys plan in an unforeseen way.
