In order to rescue her little sister from her neglectful parents, a teenager decides to run away from home, but first she and her friends must rob a blind man, so that they have the money to live alone. Will their burglary be successful?
Terrifying and thrilling, this tale of terror revolves around Rocky, a teenager who belongs to a dysfunctional and abusive family. Rebelling against her parents, she decides to rescue her little sister from the neglect.
Looking for the right amount of cash to run away with in order to do so, her boyfriend, Money, convinces her to break into the home of a blind man who supposedly has a safe in the basement. Breaking into the house in the middle of the night with their friend Alex, they discover that the blind man is not as helpless as he seems.
In fact, to their shock and horror, they find themselves in a game of cat-and-mouse with a man willing and ready to kill all three of them. Can they escape the blind man's house with their lives intact?
