Ever since her husband died in a bank job gone bad, she has been battling with herself about how to escape the only life she's ever known - and the only place she's ever thrived. The problem is, she's good at this. She's looking for a big score, a lump of money she can use like a gun to shoot her and Angie out of this life and into another one.
