Francesca “Frankie” Sutton is a Los Angeles bank teller who is fired after a robbery, because she recognized one of the robbers but she did not personally know him. Frankie goes to work at Luther’s Janitorial Services with her three best friends, Lida “Stony” Newsom, Cleopatra “Cleo” Sims, and Tisean “T.T.” Williams. Luther treats them with disrespect and pays them paltry wages. Tired of working a low-paying job, Cleo states that they should rob a bank themselves. Frankie agrees, but Stony and T.T. are reluctant. However, when Stony’s younger brother is gunned down by the police in a case of mistaken identity and T.T.’s son is taken away from her by Child Protective Services, they too now have the motivation to join the robbery.

An investigation by LAPD Detective Strode ensues. Strode suspects that Cleo (because of her prior convictions), Frankie (because of her inadvertent connection to the earlier robbery and subsequent firing) and Stony (because of her brother’s death) are involved. But his superior refuses to allow him to bring them in for questioning because he doesn’t feel the evidence is sufficient. Concerned with the safety of their money, the four women stash the money in an air vent at one of their work sites.
