Plan B

Two men in their late twenties, Jim and Frank, old friends from childhood, meet again after many years. Jim, who is trying hard to get his life back on track, is soon lured back into his old habits of drugs and crime by Frank and his pals from the old neighborhood. They set out to help Frank's father break out of jail who, in return, finances their "shopping spree" to Amsterdam.
