Synopsis

A broke, bumbling dog-groomer sees something strange across the street: every night a Cowboy delivers a different briefcase to a beautiful woman. Our hero discovers that it's a money-laundering scheme and can't resist stealing some cash. She soon finds herself on the run from the mob, but with the beautiful woman in tow. Together this odd-couple try to survive and forge an unlikely friendship along the way.
