Ernie, Max and Nick are tattoo artists who, along with piercer Vit, own A-1 Tattoo. Ernie has the unfortunate task of letting the guys know that they are behind on their rent with no solution in sight. After being humiliated by their landlord, Max comes up with a plan and the guys are convinced it's the only way they're going to save their shop. The plan: scan the sex-for-pay ads, set up a meeting with the most perverted and rob them. As things start to spiral out of control, it's not just the plan but the guys' friendship that begins to unravel.
With their shop on the verge of closing, a landlord breathing down their necks and a corpse on their hands, Max, Ernie, Vit and Nick can't help but wonder: maybe they should never have become friends. And maybe, just maybe, they shouldn't be friends anymore.
