"In With Thieves" tells the gripping story of a tough-as-nails burglary crew from the streets, a Cuban cartel deep into voodoo, ruthless Albanian gangsters, and a blood diamond deal that erupts into deadly violence. This sets off a frenzy of double-crosses and brazen executions that entwine everyone in a bloody conflict that plays out to an explosive ending that will shock audiences. In With Thieves has been described as American Gangster meets Reservoir Dogs.
Good-looking legendary career criminal Jack McGee is out of prison facing hard times. His sexy wife blew all the illicit funds he stashed away and found a lover during his incarceration. He owes Anton, a vicious Albanian gangster, half a million dollars for a gambling debt.
Anton uses Jack's junkie brother-in-law to send a brutally shocking and bloody message. Pressed, Jack pulls his old burglary crew together to steal the money he needs to stay alive. Word spreads like wildfire in criminal circles that Jack is out of prison and looking for a major score. He finds it. An illegal blood diamond deal worth five million dollars is going down between a Cuban cartel deep into voodoo and an African-based crime syndicate. Needing more firepower he's forced to bring in the homicidal Anton.
