Summary
Earle Slater is a racist ex-con looking to make a quick buck. Johnny Ingram is a nightclub performer with gambling debts. Greed and shared rage against the world turn them into bitter allies when a disgraced ex-cop recruits them to pull a bank heist. But a pivotal moment will send both men toward a cataclysmic outcome that is anything but black and white
