Storyline

When Nathan Ford, a former insurance company investigator, is approached by a man asking him to help retrieve some stolen property, he is dubious. When he finds out that the job requires him to supervise and maintain control of three known thieves that he himself caught in the course of his insurance investigations, he's more than dubious. However, the job offers him the opportunity to get some of his own back from the insurance company that allowed his son to die, so he takes it despite his misgivings. When his doubts prove to be well-founded, he persuades his reluctant colleagues to unite once more to reach a more "equitable" settlement. Written by Eideann

Goofs

When Parker cuts a hole in the glass, she only cuts through a single layer. That exterior window would be a double-pane for insulation, so she would have to cut through two layers of glass. Also, the hydrofluoric acid she used would have produced toxic vapors that could have hurt her badly but she completely ignored them. See more »
