Baltimore 1967. Frank has a dream: to go to California with his girlfriend, Mary Lou. First he must rob a bank to pay for it.
With the help of his Shylock uncle, Frank assembles a crew to take the bank out, but when members disappear and Mary Lou falls in love with their inside man, Frank can't figure out who to trust and who will come good for him.
Along the way, Frank holds his violent nature in check, while around him, others are unable to control themselves. As a taciturn man, Frank learns to express some of his emotions - beyond pushing his best friend out of a window - and even finds out the meaning of love in his own crippled way.
For those who like their action slow-burning and enjoy watching people squirm in their own ethical cesspit, The Heist is for you. The characters live in a twilight world where good and bad left the building years ago and they only have their own warped moral compass for guidance.
