Ruban Betancourt has always played by the rules. But the
bank taking his house and his restaurant business going
bust has driven him over the edge. He and his wife
deserve more than life has handed them, and heâ€™s come up
with a ballsy scheme to get it. With the help of an
airport insider, he, his coke-head brother-in-law,
Jeffrey, and two ex-cons surprise the guards loading the
armored trucks and speed off with $7.4 million in the bed
of a pickup truck.
Investigating the heist, FBI agent Andie Henning, newly
transferred to Miami from Seattle, knows the best way to
catch the thieves is to follow the money. Jeffreyâ€™s drug
addiction is as conspicuous as the Rolex watches he buys
for dancers at the Gold Rush strip club. One of the ex-
cons, Pinky Perez, makes no secret of his plan to own a
swingerâ€™s clubâ€”which will allow him carte blanche with
his patronsâ€™ wives. Levelheaded Ruban is desperately
trying to lay low and hold things together.
But Agent Henning isnâ€™t the only one on their trail, and
in the mob-meets-Miami fashion, these accidental thieves
suddenly find themselves way in over their heads . . .
and sinking fast.
