Kip Raines (Giovanni Ribisi), an aspiring but hapless car thief in Los Angeles, is working with his gang to steal fifty high-end cars for Raymond Calitri (Christopher Eccleston), a British gangster who has taken over organized crime in Long Beach. Calitri's base is a salvage yard. He also has a passion for woodworking and has built his first coffin, which takes on sinister overtones as Kip's plans run into serious difficulties.

While stealing a Porsche 996, Kip smashes a window with a brick and later engages in an impromptu street race, and his reckless behavior attracts the attention of the police. Kip and his crew narrowly avoid capture, but are forced to abandon the warehouse and the cars they have stolen so far. Detectives Castlebeck (Delroy Lindo) and Drycoff (Timothy Olyphant) impound the cars and begin an investigation.

Calitri kidnaps Kip and threatens to kill him in a car crusher for failing the job. Calitri's associate, Atley Jackson (Will Patton) is sympathetic to Kip's plight, and visits Kip's older brother, Randall "Memphis" Raines (Nicolas Cage), a former car thief who went straight years before, to explain the situation. Memphis meets with Calitri to negotiate Kip's release, offering him money, which Calitri refuses. Calitri agrees to release Kip, but only if Memphis steals the fifty cars within 72 hours. If the cars are not delivered on time, Calitri will find and kill Kip.
