The movie starts on a Friday when Andy, who sleeps in his basement wakes up to the voice of his wife and daughter talking to his policeman brother, Zeke. When his daughter runs to the basement for some cereal, he reminds her to not let her uncle and mother knows about him being down there. Zeke, suspicious of the talking sound, runs downstairs but Andy escapes by stealing his neighbour's car. 

Zeke picks up his partner, Reed and  along with FBI Agents, Kyle and Kurt, goes on to Judge Brad's house, only to found him dead. Meanwhile, Andy drives to a forest and meet with Steph, the wife of Ed, his accomplice. He loads the money into her car but before he can get in, he is shot by the passenger, who only shows his tattooed hand. 

The scene changes to Thursday, the day before.  The cops are at the crime scene where the found Chris, a meth addict, dead.  Zeke reveals that Andy was the prosecutor during Ed and Chris's case that caused accidental death to Ed and Steph's son in a meth lab explosion. The plea was questionable and everyone think that Andy is corrupted.

Elsewhere, Judge Brad is discussing angrily with Ed to stop blackmailing him with an incriminating tape.
