After 28 years, Val gets out of prison, and his friend Doc picks him up. The local mob boss, Claphands, wants Val dead (Claphands' son died in a robbery and he blames Val) and Doc has until morning to kill him. It's a long night: Val wants to party - they visit a cat house, Val needs Viagra, they break into a pharmacy. After midnight, they pick up Hirsch, their old wheelman, drive the city in a stolen car. They visit the cat house, help a woman in distress, bury a body, and eat at Doc's hangout, a café where the waitress, Alex, is cheerful. The sun rises, Claphands wants Val dead, and Val, who has figured out his fate, is resigned. Is there anything left to take care of?
They don't make 'em like they used to.

Doc grabs a bottle of pills off the shelf and calls them latanoprost, but latanoprost is a drop for the eye that is kept in the pharmacy refrigerator before dispensing to patients. Later, Valentine opens the capsules that doc says are for glaucoma (latanoprost is for glaucoma), and proceeds to snort the powder inside, which wouldn't be possible with any glaucoma meds as they are almost all drops except for 1 tablet available commercially.
