For nearly twenty years after his boxing career ended Merle Hench works for Murdoch, the boss of a San Fernando mob outfit.

Merle spends his days cracking heads and collecting debts, it is not a job he enjoys.

His Boss thinks Merle has outlived his usefulness and is expendable. So they set him up to take the fall for a multi-million dollar heist of a rival mob boss.

A habitual gambler on a 20 year losing streak, Merle's luck turns as he survives the trap and winds up with a piece of the take and the girl.

Merle's boss' betrayal of his loyalty for 20 years snaps something inside him.
