Plot

Eddie has a reputation of being a real card pro, so his three friends Tom, Soap and Bacon chip-in to put up 100,000 for a high-stakes 3 card brag game with the infamous underworld gangster boss Harry 'The Hatchet' Lonsdale. However Eddie is stitched up by Harry to the tune of half-a-million. Harry threatens to cut off Eddie's fingers unless he comes up with the money smartish.

As Eddie and his mates sit around at home discussing the precarious situation, they overhear their low-life neigbours planning to steal the massive takings of an illegal cannabis-growing operation. It seems an opportunity to good to miss - Eddie and his friends decide to rob the robbers.
