Frankie (Vivica A. Fox) is fired from her job as a bank teller after a heist in which she recognizes but doesn't know one of the robbers. Out of work, she joins her friends working for a janitorial service where they are not treated well by management. Annoyed over the disrespect they receive and crummy pay, the four decide to start robbing banks, which grants them both a bunch of cash and the attention of an obsessive detective.
