In this undistinguished clich├ęd thriller, a convict tries to go straight, but circumstances conspire against him. Some professional thugs con a group of naive delinquents into a burglary that is only meant to be a decoy for the police, so the real and more lucrative crime can be committed without interference. When the delinquents discover they have been taken for a ride, they resolve to get revenge and go after the master criminals. Enough blood is shed to supply the Red Cross for decades as these groups face off. In the meantime, one of the crooks only wants some money to send his young son to the U.S. for a life-saving operation -- and he's willing to do anything to get it.
