Dead Draw

Synopsis: 25 million dollars, 8 safety deposit boxes, and months before anyone will know it's gone. But Harrison's (Gil Bellows) perfect heist turns deadly when his safe-cracker, Mack (Michael Eklund), discovers their getaway pilot brutally murdered. Someone knew about the job, someone set them up. Stranded in a frozen hangar, held hostage by someone outside, loyalty turns to suspicion and friends turn to enemies. Now it's a race against time as the band of thieves try to uncover the rat and escape their troubled pasts... if they can survive the night.

- I'm telling you

Dallas looks nervous.

- Your brother's gonna be fine.

- Are you sure you

got that combination?

- Compliments of Ms. Parker.

- I hope she's right.

- She always is.

- Not about the

combination or the clock.

- What did I just say?

If you can't do this,

you should've told me.

- If that clock

ain't have zeros,

I won't have a chance.

- Almost done.

They're watching reruns.

- All right.

What's the combination?

- 25,





You ready for the beach, Jonesy?

- F*** yeah.

- Yeah, let's go.

- Glad you came.

It only took us 18

years to get here.

- We still got

3,000 miles to go.

- What the hell is his problem?

- He's not used to winning.

- You heard the man let's go.

- Sh*t ain't gonna walk

on its own let's go.

- Hey, where's our pilot?

What is it?

- We got a problem.

- What happened?

- It's Bartlett.

- What's going on?

- Where the f*** is it?

- Where is he?

- In there.

- The people we're stealing

from are bloodhounds.

If you f*** up

they will smell it.

They will follow the trail

until they find you and then me,

and then they'll burn

everything we've ever touched.

You need to be smart

about this one, Harrison.

- Is it worth the risk?

- You have no idea.

Frisco City, Indiana

it's somewhere between

Chicago and Indianapolis

middle of nowhere.

It's far enough off the

freeway that no one stops by.

The only thing not slowly

sinking into the soil

is a private bank,

which is why the

cartel loves it.

Chicago's a huge market

supplied by Miami.

So their drug traffic

comes up the interstate,

and then somewhere

around Frisco City

the shipments are

exchanged for cash.

The drugs head north,

and the cash stays right here

in safety deposit boxes.

The cartel isn't taking chances

when it comes to their

drives getting any ideas.

So it just sits there until

Miami decides to pick it up.

You get in and get out

clean without a trace

by the time the cartel finds out

you will be long gone.

- Your source?

- Solid.

This is the middle

of America, Harrison.

They throw their veterans a

Christmas parade every year.

You're gonna wear fatigues

and carry the takeout

in Army duffel bags.

I hear Mack finished his time.

- I didn't know you

were keeping tabs.

- I'll tell you what I think.

You feel like you owe him,

and you're planning

on using him.

- I don't think it's

any of your business.

- It is, Harrison,

because if you f*** up

who do you think

it comes down on?

- You run sh*t

from behind a desk.

You don't know what it's like

when the clock is ticking.

Let me give you a number.

18 jobs, no f*** ups.

That's why you're

here because what I do

pays your bills,

and the only reason that

happens is 'cause of my men.

'Cause when the clock is ticking

and the heat is

breathing down my neck

and I hear those sirens,

I know the three guys

in the ship with me

ain't gonna run not

until I tell them to.

And this ain't

happening without them.

- 17.

- Excuse me.

- 17 out of 18.

- Well, since Mack took the fall

and you got your take

I consider that a win.

- Don't get me

wrong I'm grateful.

I could've silenced Mack if

I wanted to but I didn't.

- This conversation's over.

- Harrison,

no matter who you are doing

that much time leaves a mark

especially if you're doing

that time for somebody else.

Mack's changed.

He found God and now he spends

all of his time on his

knees repenting his sins.

- Well, then he can use

his share to buy a church.

I trust him.

- I know.

- Ah, Jesus.

- No.

- Oh, god.

- What happened?

- I found him in here with this.
