Writer and director Quentin Tarantino adapts Elmore Leonard's bestseller Rum Punch in a stylish homage to 1970s exploitation movies. 

What do a sexy stewardess (Pam Grier), a street-tough gun runner (Samuel L. Jackson), a lonely bail bondsman (Robert Forster), a shifty ex-con (Robert De Niro), an earnest federal agent (Michael Keaton), and a stoned-out beach bunny (Bridget Fonda) have in common? They're six players on the trail of a half million dollars in cash! The only questions are who's getting played and who's gonna make the big score?
