Hollywood star Edmond O'Brien (D.O.A.) directs his second and final film - a widescreen heist thriller shot in glorious black-and-white by legendary cinematographer, Loyal Griggs (Shane). During the Korean War, Matt (Jeffrey Hunter) saves Vince's life and in return, Vince (David Janssen) promises to one day pay him back with half his earnings. Years later, Vince suddenly appears for a reunion and talks Matt into a questionable venture involving a plot to hijack nearly $4 million from the mob, which they would split fifty-fifty. Stella Stevens (Too Late Blues) co-stars as Matt's alcoholic and promiscuous wife.
