Reluctant bank robber Jack Burn is on the run after a heist in the United States that left three million dollars missing and one cop dead.
Hiding out in Cape Town, he is desperate to build a new life for his pregnant wife and young son.
But on a tranquil evening in their new suburban neighborhood, they are the victims of a random gangland break-in. Benny Mongrel, an ex-con night watchman, knows who went into Burn's house, and what the American did to them. Burn's actions soon trap them both in a cat-and-mouse game with Rudi "Gatsby" Barnard, a corrupt Afrikaner cop.
Once Gatsby smells those missing American millions, the men are drawn into a web of murder and vengeance that builds to an unforgettable conclusion.
