Two criminals—one released early from prison, the other escaped from custody— decide to rob a jewelry store. However, in order to do this they need to find a partner, whom they can trust. Double crosses, revenge, and manipulation all take place in an axiomatic noir about a robbery, each scene of which is split into quotes.
