Complexly plotted and suspenseful, this crime drama pays much heed to the psychological undertones of the relationships between a gang of thugs who take on their own boss. It begins on Hooker's wedding night. After the ceremony his friends celebrate while doing their assigned tasks. In one scene Michael, the handsome ring leader, has a meeting in a restroom with a strange cop. Later, four gang members are seen using violence to force a gambler to pay his debts. Afterward these four decide they need more compensation for their grim work. It is Michael, who fancies himself far more clever than he is, who comes up with the idea that they team up and take on their crime boss Leo. Unfortunately, his plans go awry and more bloodshed ensues.
