This is a brilliant film from beginning to end. One of the best psychological thrillers to this day, you won't want to be missing out on this one.

" Three blue-collar acquaintances come across millions of dollars in lost cash and make a plan to keep their find from the authorities, but it isn't long before complications and mistrust weave their way into the plan. Based on the novel by Scott B. Smith, the film didn’t do all that well in theatres, critics the movie to actually not that bad."
