Karla has found herself out of work and with no marketable job skills. She is a former beauty contest winner and had been employed as a receptionist at a local bank. Her roommate Jackie works as a kindergarten teacher but her salary is too small to pay 100% of the costs for rent and food. Karla knows that the bank president, Michael, keeps $10,000 in his home so she decides to steal that money. Knowing that Michael will be away for the weekend, she goes to his home, picks the lock on his backdoor and enters his home. In his bedroom she finds his safe but cannot open it. It is also too heavy for her to carry out. Frustrated, she simply leaves without taking anything.

Now desperate for money, she runs into Barbara and Pamela, two former friends from her beauty pageant days. They too are jobless and unmarketable. They develop a plan to rob Karla’s former boss on August 8th. The plan includes the purchase of masks and the use of a gun, though they intend it for show and won’t even load it. On August 7th, Barbara purchases the masks and Pamela visits an old boyfriend and while there, steals his pistol.
