The Killing

Fresh out of prison crook Johnny Clay assembles a crew of five men with a plan to rob a horse race-track of millions in broad daylight. Working with a few inside men, a sharp-shooter, a police officer and an ex-wrestler, Johnny has every step meticulously planned for a clean getaway. However when one of the men’s wives, Sherry, finds out about the deal she plans a heist of her own with her boyfriend Val which could jeopardize the entire operation. Each man has their own reasons for wanting the loot and each of them has a specific function to carry out on the day, one minute late and the whole thing goes up in smoke.
