After being robbed as a teenager, Matthew Williams plants a bomb to seek revenge on his attackers. But when police find the bomb, they quickly arrest him and send him to high-security prison on an island. Eventually, an opportunity to escape presents itself when a friend of Matthew's, Keith, is transferred to the same prison. The day of their escape arrives, and all goes flawlessly until the trio makes it to the airfield and Keith can't get the planes started.
