The movie begins with Joey Gazelle (Paul Walker) driving with a boy, Oleg (Cameron Bright) in a convertible. Oleg has a blood stain on his shirt, implying that he had been shot. The rest of the movie flashes back to the events that led up to this point. Joey, a low-level mafioso, is attending a drug deal with his boss Tommy (Johnny Messner) and associate Sal. The deal goes bad when masked men burst in and try to steal the drugs and money. The stand-off descends into a shoot-out and several of the masked men are killed before the leader flees. Tommy discovers a badge on one of the dead men, revealing that they were dirty cops. As the mobsters flee in a panic, Tommy gives the murder weapons to Joey, telling him to get rid of them.
