Frank is an expert professional safecracker, specializing in high-profile diamond jobs. After having spent many years in prison, he has a very concrete picture of what he wants out of life--including a nice home, a wife, and kids. As soon as he is able to assemble the pieces of this collage, by means of his chosen profession, he intends to retire and become a model citizen. In an effort to accelerate this process, he signs on to take down a huge score for a big-time gangster. Unfortunately, Frank's obsession for his version of the American Dream allows him to overlook his natural wariness and mistrust, when making the deal for his final job. He is thus ensnared and robbed of his freedom, his independence, and, ultimately, his dream. Written by

The scene where Barry is lying dead next to Frank, in the original theatrical release, Leo said to Frank, "People will be eating them for lunch tomorrow in their McDonald's hamburgers and not know it." When the film came out on VHS, "McDonald's" had been removed and only "... tomorrow in their hamburgers and not know it" can be heard. On DVD, "Whimpy burgers" is now said by Leo. See more

I got some A-B-C type information for you, lady. I was state-raised, and this is a dead place. A child in eight-by-four green walls, after awhile you tell the walls 'my life is yours.' What, didja grow up in the suburbs?
