Neil Skinner, once a San Diego racetrack-security consultant, is now an ex-con who was framed by his ex-partner, Ebbet. Ebbet now controls track security as well as Neil's ex-girlfriend, Sheila. Neil now wants to revenge himself by stealing the day's take, and he enlists the help of several track regulars, including a janitor, a security guard, an and an ambulance driver. The money switches hands, cars chase each other over the Mexican border and back, and it's a struggle to see who will out-con whom.
He had four years to plan his revenge and one week to pull it off.

I going to take you. You won't know where and you won't know when, but you'll feel me over your shoulder. You'll wake up in the middle of the night from a bad dream and you'll know I'm coming.
