Recognizing a kindred spirit, Mel befriends Bobbie and his girlfriend Rosie, inviting them to join him and his long-suffering girlfriend Sid on a drug robbery which should set them up for life. The seemingly simple robbery is a great success, but the sale of the drugs afterward fails badly, and Mel and Bobbie are shot.
