Four women, Stony (Jada Pinket... The Nutty Professor), Cleo (Rap Star, Queen Latifah - Jungle Fever, House Party II), Frankie (Vivica A. Fox - Independence Day, Batman and Robin) and Tisean (Kimberly Elise) have spent a lifetime struggling to move away from the mean streets of their neighborhood. But the system stole their dreams, and now they are determined to steal them back. Targeting the banks of Los Angeles, the four rob the city's most vulnerable financial institutions. Flush with cash, they discover that easy money can inch them towards their elusive goal of escaping L.A., but it can't solve their problems. The police are hot on their trail, with Detective Strode (John C. McGinley - Seven, Nixon, Platoon), obsessed with pinning it on the girls. Soon the four realize that breaking out of prison may be easier than busting free from the 'hood.
