Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but a quarter of a million dollars can be quite a pal too, as an ex-Navy Seal with a gold-digging girlfriend discovers in this hair-raising heist film from former Tales From the Crypt and China Beach director David Burton Morris. All Frank Syler (Dylan Walsh) wants after retiring from the service is a quiet life with ravishingly beautiful girlfriend Cyndee LaFrance (Brooke Shields), but an ex-military man's budget just doesn't cut it for a girl of such refined tastes. When Frank visits Cyndee at the bank where she works and notices the lax security with which the institution guards its funds, he soon hatches a scheme to raid the vault so that he may continue to provide the kind of lifestyle to which Cyndee has become accustomed. Unfortunately for Frank, FBI agent Royce (Rip Torn) is on the case and determined to crack the "perfect crime" wide open.
