Five years in, bank colleagues Nadine Ship and Jonathan Evans hit a road block in their personal relationship. Nadine wants their relationship to move to the next level, whereas Jonathan is happy keeping things the way they are. Nadine feels re-energized when a new bank customer starts flirting with her. But things take a more significant turn in Nadine and Jonathan's life when a masked robber comes into the bank and following the heist, takes Nadine hostage. As her assailant takes Nadine along on his personal mission, Jonathan follows a hunch of his own on the identity of the robber in an effort to try and win back Nadine, who was slowly drifting away from him.

Thoughtful meditation on gender, genre in a bank-robber-on-the-run story.
I thought this was a very nice meditation on genre, gender, and a very professionally shot "indie" film about a woman who is finding her her own identity - and what she's capable of.
All wrapped up in a bank-robber/on-the-run-from-the-law story, the guy isn't very interesting; it's all about the woman (Moira Kelly). Sure she falls in love with him...or maybe the idea of being in love and on the run. A smart script, nice elliptical thematic touches to keep things moving on a more "conceptual" level.
The other comments that note there is no "plot" miss the point. It's about her "movement" - through space, down the road, and into a state of understanding.
I hope this person makes more movies.
