Storyline

Two novice thieves are plotting to rob a bank in Vancouver. A photographer snaps a shot of one thief as he is carrying the bank building's blueprints. The would-be thief then begins a relationship with the photographer and attempts to retrieve the photos. Meanwhile, the thieves' plot consists of this: one man will enter the bank building after dark, while the other man sits in a van and uses a computer to unlock the building's doors. The final step involves transporting the cash to a freight ship waiting on the docks, for transportation to a money launderer in Macau. Written by Ken Miller <wkmiller704@yahoo.com>

Donald Sutherland and Paul Marzursky are planning a bank robbery when Sutherland begins an affair with photographer Brooke Adams. In a stretching of their usual screen personas, Marzursky is neurotic and Miss Adams is quirky. DP Jack Cardiff shoots Vancouver which, for a change, is supposed to be Vancouver.

It's an okay movie, which thirty years earlier would have been an ordinary programmer, or even a B movie. Unexceptional, some good moments, but adds nothing substantial to anyone's career, although I'm sure everyone worked their hardest.
