Cullen rushes directly to the exit along with his only possession, the picture of him and his brother that he then throws away after being released.

Before serving time in jail, Cullen was a mere driver. One day, his stepbrother asked for his help in a bank robbery operation they work planning on doing. His stepbrother owed money to a lot of people and was in desperate need of help to pay it back. Cullen agreed to be their driver, given his unparalleled skills in driving. After a successful bank job, they retreat to a friend's home with the money. Unprecedentedly, they were attacked by another group. Two of their friends were immediately shot and killed. James and his brother is bound and threatened to be killed too if they didn't tell where the money was. Though James tells them where the money is, they are still both killed. However, he is revived in the hospital a few days later.
