Synopsis

Thanks to an unknown informant, Nick Vincent is arrested and incarcerated on several counts of armed robbery. Vincent's accomplice, Manny Breen remains a fugitive. Eight years later, Nick is released from a New York prison and moves to Los Angeles to locate his ex-girlfriend Maria DeRazio. After reuniting with a reluctant Maria, Nick moves in with her and her eight year old daughter Ally. Maria is in the midst of an abusive relationship with her ex husband, police officer Manny Breen and does not want anything to do with Nick, but he convinces her of his rehabilitation. Reports of recent thefts trigger police surveillance on ex-con Harry Koslow, the owner of an apartment complex where Maria resides and police come to suspect a possible partnership with Nick. A rash of bank robberies subsequently plagues Beverly Hills. Officer Breen becomes jealous when he suspects Nick's involvement in the robberies and wants a part of the action eventually leading to an explosive showdown.
