These two burglars will leave no stones, stereotypes, or septic tanks unturned.

Brady and Denis have found one easy solution to save their house from the bank: burglary. Then, one night Brady steals a picture of a woman who is everything he is not – educated, wealthy, upwardly mobile, and African-American.
