Bank manager Claire Keesey is taken hostage during a robbery. She is released, but Doug MacRay, the brains behind the tough, tight-knit crew of thieves, is shocked to realise that he has fallen for her. They meet, and it soon becomes clear that the attraction is mutual. But Claire has another admirer: FBI agent Adam Frawley. Meanwhile, Doug's gang pulls off another job. Frustrated by their ingenuity and brazen ambition, Frawley begins to zero in on the gang.
