The plot resolves around three friends - Bear, Speed and Tone - working as debt collectors on behalf of Pops Den (Mad Frank Fraiser). Tone discovers he has a baby daughter and decides to retire from gangster life. Pops Den subsequently orders Bear and Speed to kill Tone and to deliver his hand at 9am the following day. The story shows the fears that Bear and Speed have while trying to think of a way to kill Tone trying to give him one last big night.
