Duke and Freddie steal car accessories for a living, selling them on the black market. Duke’s girlfriend, Peg, tries to convince him to stop his life of crime.

She is held, but takes down Duke’s license plate number. Fearing he will be discovered, Duke kills Janice, persuades Peg to come with him, and flees town.
