By the light of day, these four would never be caught dead together, but when their getaway takes a dangerously unpredictable turn, sticking together could be the only way to survive.
They find themselves in the wrong pace at the end of a party and decide to make a quick get-a-way. As they are trying to escape, they hit someone and think they have killed him. Then they find out the car they are in is an undercover police car filled with drugs. As they try to figure out what to do, they go on the run.
