Za pomočnika pri drznem podvigu si izbere svoje dekle Phyliss in dolgoletnega prijatelja Loomisa. Rop jim sicer popolnoma uspe, zaplete pa se, ko se pripravljajo na odhod iz mesta. Za petami jim je šef policije, poleg tega pa Phyliss ugotovi, da pričakuje Grimmovega otroka in jo začnejo obhajati dvomi.
When a man dressed as a clown enters a bank and tries to rob it, no one takes him seriously at start. But as this New Yorker pulls this daring robbery with the help of his friends, it looks like leaving the bank with all the stolen money is the easy part! All they have to do now is make it out of the city and to the airport. They have plenty of time, but its not that easy as they seem to get out of one problem only to fall into another. Will they make before the cops catch up with them?
