On his first weekend out on parole after five years in prison, Mark feels the need to make amends with his brother Toni. About to be evicted from their family home, Toni accuses Mark of abandoning him and their ailing mother. The following morning, Mark wakes up in his car; a young and attractive stripper is sleeping on the backseat. After taking her to the shopping mall where she works, he witnesses the bloody armed robbery of a security van. He decides to follow it, setting in motion a chain of bloody events.
