Story


While pulling a down-and-dirty jewelry heist on a subway train, Jack (Antonio Banderas, "The Mask of Zorro") encounters Ripley (Morgan Freeman, "Million Dollar Baby"), a legendary thief who was casing the same job. In spite of Jack's initial reluctance, Ripley manages to rope him into helping pull off an impossible job: the theft of two previously undiscovered Faberge Imperial Eggs from the heavily guarded vault of a New York diamond wholesaler. The vault, unfortunately, is controlled by former KGB operatives who are secretly looting the Russian National Treasury. To add more stress to the situation, Ripley's beautiful goddaughter Alex (Rhada Mitchell - "Phone Booth", "Finding Neverland") has a romantic liaison with Jack, which causes additional strain to their fragile partnership. Staying one step ahead of the NYPD, the FBI, the diamond merchants and a vicious Russian crime boss determined to have the priceless eggs for himself, Jack and Ripley must figure out how to pull the heist and make it out alive without betraying one another, or themselves.
