Randall is glib, handsome and crooked...but he has a code of honor. Although he sold cars and real estate for a living before moving up to burglary there are a few things he won't do for money. While casing a house on the Main Line he connects with perky Pam, a real estate agent who doesn't have his scruples. She thinks he might be just the man for a job she has in mind. Pam wants all of the fortune her husband is due to inherit. She'll pay Randall to dispose of Jerry, a dentist who has been sharing his toothbrush with his assistant, Carmela. While Randall is hesitating over his career choice he falls in love with Karen, the nurse who is caring for Jerry's dying father. Randall wants the money Pam offered him, but he's not eager to do what it takes to earn it. So Pam turns for help to a small time Philadelphia hood who turns out to be Carmela's boyfriend Jesus. Jesus is anxious to demonstrate his manhood. And the result is an extraction that is far bloodier than anyone expected.
