Plot Description

NICKY is a young man with a dark past; he led a life of dealing drugs and robbery in Queens, New York.

When NICKY meets JULIA, a pretty Mexican girl, he falls madly in love with her. She accepts him as he is, but on the condition that he must leave the life of crime and find a legitimate job.

For NICKY it is a real chance to accomplish his dream and get what he never had: a family.

The film begins with our now-married lovers four years later.

They are leaving in a poor district of Brooklyn south.

Except recently, NICKY was fired from his night janitor job, and he has only one job left as a construction worker. His wife is expecting their second child; He lies about getting fired.

The bills pile up; And JOSE an old pal from Queens makes him an offer he can’t refuse.

They must steal an important file kept in a money laundering grocery store.

NICKY is torn between his wife's requirement that they live as good citizens and the temptation of quick easy money.

One day, NICKY and JULIA, drive home from the hospital and NICKY receives a call from JOSE that the time has come for the grocery holdup; It’s now or never.

After the hospital, NICKY needs this money more than ever. He drives straight there with his oblivious wife still with him. From past he thinks it will take only five minutes.

He parks the car a little further down the street to keep JULIA safe just in case things turn bad.

NICKY meets JOSE and they enter the grocery store on the corner.

While JOSE points a gun at the owner, NICKY steals the file in the back of the grocery. All goes well, until the owner pulls a gun from behind the counter and shoots JOSE.

JULIA hears the shots from the car, and rushes to the grocery store and witnesses NICKY in the middle of the chaos.

Realizing that NICKY has returned to his old demons she cannot trust him anymore.

NICKY must make the right choice; his wife and the impossible good life or the reality of good, dirty money.
