Three burglars break into a rich man’s home to dig up a hidden million dollars but when they fail to find it, end up taking the homeowner hostage.
After doing time for killing a man he caught sleeping with his wife, decorated Iraq
War Vet Hank Weathers, aka Blade, leaves jail with precious information from his cellmate Fred Simmons. Incarcerated for tax evasion and fraud, Fred lets Blade in on a secret: he hid a million dollars in his mansion where his ex and her lover now live. All Blade has to do is find the money and it’s all his. Once out of the joint, Blade is picked up by his old Marine buddy Chad Brown and a hired hand named Bullet, a young ex-military soldier and an expert safe opener.
Once inside the mansion, the three burglars start looking for the million dollars but fail to find it where it was supposed to be. As the treasure hunt begins, an unexpected visitor drops in
causing the burglars to hide. Bullet’s cell phone rings, attracting undesired attention. The brief
confrontation between the two men ends in one of them getting knocked unconscious.
Once Blade and Chad rush in, they find Bullet standing over a dead body. Bullet argues it was an accident but his friends see it another way. Now more than ever, the burglars are resolved to find the loot and bail out. But to their surprise, another visitor drops in. Heather Graham quickly gets suspicious when she realizes that her boyfriend Alex is nowhere to be found even though his clothes, the roses and champagne he brought are in the house. Once she goes down to the basement, she spots Bullet’s shoes behind a piece of furniture. She runs upstairs, locks the door and pulls her phone to call for help. Just then, Blade’s gun presses against her temple.
Now the burglars are faced with a hostage situation and must extract information from Heather to find the million dollars or they are in deep trouble. Heather knows that her survival depends on how long she can keep a cat and mouse going until help arrives. If she tells her captors where the money is hidden, she may not live to see them arrested especially after they had killed her boyfriend. Her only chance of survival is to wage psychological warfare. She does it by finding the weakness in each burglar then playing him off against the two others. She plays off Bullet’s sentimentality against Chad’s sexual desire for her, and then pits them both against Blade’s ruthlessness. Her game pays off for a while up until two cops show up to her house.
With the inevitable final confrontation at play, the duel between cops and burglars is the only thing that will determine whether Heather lives or dies.
