The job involves stealing millions of dollars worth of cryptocurrency from the Money Plane, a secretive airborne casino run by a ruthless gangster known as Darius Grouch III (Thomas Jane).
After assembling a team of skilled criminals, Jack and his team board the Money Plane, which is equipped with a wide variety of games and gambling opportunities, including blackjack, roulette, craps, and even matches between human beings and animals. Once onboard, the team must navigate through a series of obstacles in order to get to the vault and retrieve the valuable cryptocurrency.
As the mission progresses, we see several twists and turns that keep the audience on the edge of their seats, including the revelation of another team of thieves with their own agenda on the plane, and the introduction of a high-stakes heist game called 'Thieves' Highway', which allows the players to bet on whether the heist will succeed or fail.
