Synopsis

Eddie, an American in England, leads a trio of professional criminals--Johnny, a strong-arm; Syd, a safecracker; and Steve, the Nigerian driver--in a daring robbery. Their getaway is hindered by the sudden appearance of the night watchman's daughter, Carol, whom they kidnap after beating up the old man. Johnny votes to kill Carol, while Syd and Steve agree to leave the decision to Eddie. During the 2-day wait for the delayed getaway boat, Carol's hostility toward Eddie, who is guarding her, excites him and he rapes her. To his surprise, Carol becomes aroused and eagerly turns to him for satisfaction. Meanwhile, Steve and Syd plan to force Eddie to divide the money, and Johnny picks up an ex-convict who also wants a share. When Carol's father dies from the beating, the men rendezvous at their warehouse hideout to plan their strategy. Johnny and the ex-con try to take the money, and Eddie kills the ex-con. As Eddie struggles with Johnny, the staircase gives way and the dilapidated building begins to collapse. The men scramble greedily for the money, but Eddie, realizing his love for Carol, pushes her to safety and is crushed with the others when the building crumbles.
