Veteran criminal Johnny Clay wants one more big score before he settles down with his girlfriend Fay. He plots out an ambitious racetrack heist involving a gang of small-timers and petty crooks. The robbery goes off as planned, but a double-cross leads to mistrust and the gang falls apart in a storm of bullets.
