A police detective named Jack (Samuel L. Jackson) stumbles upon a bizarre band of criminals about to pull off a bank robbery and finds himself being held hostage while the criminals decide what to do with him. The leader's beautiful girlfriend, Erin (Milla Jovovich), is left alone to watch Jack. Erin, who we discover is a master manipulator of the men in the gang, reveals another side to Jack -- a melancholy romantic who could have been a classical pianist. She finds Jack's captivity an irresistible turn-on and he cannot figure out if she is for real, or manipulating him, too. Before the gang returns, Jack and Erin's connection intensifies and who ends up with the money is anyone's guess.
