About two childhood best friends, Chet and Will, who have a deep falling out one night over drinks when Will confesses his love for Chet's sister Kate. Chet, a school teacher and the more successful of the two, gets upset and says things he regrets and Wayne, down and out and miserable because Kate is moving away — his secret lifelong crush all these years — also drops a litany of terrible history that should have remained unspoken. Their friendship would be irrevocably broken, if fate didn't intervene. Across town, two stupid, whitetrash would-be-hoods Dwayne and his sycophant friend Jay are plotting to have Dwayne's rich father killed so they can reap the inheritance. But they need to pay someone to do the deed, so they hatch a wild plan, based on Jay's backwoods skills; make a bomb, strap it to some unlucky soul and force him to rob a bank so they can pay their hitman. Will of course becomes that unfortunate sap and soon he's begging Chet to help him race against time. He's got eight hours to deliver the money before the bomb strapped to his chest goes off.
