In a Cincinnati hotel room, seven buddies play poker intending to discuss a heist. Somebody named Parker, sitting out the hand, gets up, takes off his tie, and wraps it around the throat of somebody named Harbin who is wearing a wire. Some people named Dalesia and Mott pretend the game is still on as Parker kills Harbin. Somebody named McWhitney, who brought Harbin to the game, disposes of the body. The game breaks up with Fletcher pretending to be Harbin informing the others he will clean up. Stratton thanks “Harbin” as they all leave.

However, Dalesia and Parker, who have a bit of history together, talk about being out of work. Dalesia says he has a somewhat risky idea for a heist of over a million dollars being transported by four armored trucks guarded by twelve security agents. Parker wants to participate though he understands that the prime risk comes from two key “rookies”, the banker's wife and a former bank employee, neither of which can keep their enthusiasm nor fears quiet. Meanwhile Harbin's partners hunt for him by tracking the poker players. Now the gang, Harbin's partners, and Police Detective Gwen Reversa rendezvous with four armored-cars.
