After years in prison for a crime he did not commit, a felon is offered freedom and the dream of a new life for him and his son--in return for certain services. He and three accomplices, his son among them, are to hijack an armored car and recover a potentially damaging document for the government. The job has been carefully planned but something goes wrong: a guard trapped in the back of the truck refuses to surrender. A harrowing battle of nerves sets in, with tensions rising on all sides. Nothing is quite what it appears to be, and a series of setbacks and double-crosses forces a violent ending to the ordeal.
