Billy and Steve owe drug dealer Tyvan a lot of money for marijuana that they smoked but were supposed to sell for him. To pay off their debt to the violent and unpredictable criminal, they decide to pull an armed robbery on a car wash. Things go haywire and their life of crime goes spiraling out of control when sometimes-girlfriend Mary Lou joins them and their getaway driver turns on them. It’s Rockers versus Gangster Rappers in the heartland of the bad Chicago streets.
