Frank Gomez was a young man from the barrio with big dreams - being a gangster, one with beautiful women and lots of money. Through a friend he met Tony who was looking for someone to join his crew.

Frank jumped right in, proving his thief capabilities immediately by securing the keys and ID from his target. He aimed to be one of Tony’s most trusted associates.

The job was a daring one, robbing a heavily guarded truck carrying millions in cash.

They met at a bar to discuss the plan. Tony talked for hours. He had the route maps, check in times and driver change spots. He knew the security details and how to get past them.

The plan was simple, kill one of the replacement drivers and have Frank impersonate him at the driver exchange. Frank would drive the truck, disable the GPS, and head to Tony’s warehouse. It was a risky plan, but one that had a good chance of success. Frank listened intently, imagining doing what Tony was saying.

They shook hands and agreed to meet the next day to rehearse the route. They were both excited. They knew that this was their time to win.
