A​dam is dying of ALS, his body shaking and no longer his own. But he has a young disabled son to provide for and no health care. His solution? Rob a bank, but in a way that goes unnoticed. All he has to do is get a code onto the bank’s system, and he’ll skim a few dollars from thirty thousand accounts. Easy, right?​ ​R​ichard is the bank manager, who has been quietly robbing the bank for years, taking money from rich customers to pay off poor people’s overdrafts. He thinks he’s Robin Hood, but when A​dam draws a gun and it goes off, he can’t call the police.​ ​M​ilo is a schoolteacher, who’s in deep trouble. He’s been pretending to be a high roller in a local casino, and now has a debt to pay. He’s being escorted to the bank by A​rcher, a heavy in the employ of S​aul Bonavechio, the casino owner, to make sure he pays up. M​ilo​ was just trying to impress the croupier, A​lice, but she’s got bigger problems, like avoiding having to go on the game to pay her mother’s bills.​ ​When A​dam gets to the front of the queue, he meets S​asha, who has given up on men and is about to have the worst day of her life when A​dam pulls a gun. A​rcher tries to intervene and is shot, when Adam can’t control his tremors. But R​ichard won’t call the police. A​dam can’t let anyone leave. And M​ilo is just hoping A​rcher dies…

Everyone has their own story, their own agenda, and they all want out. But what happens if they leave? Will they give A​dam up? Or will they work together?
