On August 22, 1972, first-time crook Sonny Wortzik, his friend Salvatore “Sal” Naturile, and Stevie attempt to rob the First Brooklyn Savings Bank. The plan immediately goes awry when Stevie loses his nerve and flees. Sonny discovers they arrived after the daily cash pickup, and find only $1,100 in cash. Sonny takes the bank’s traveler’s checks and burns the register in a trash can, but the smoke raises suspicion outside, and the building is surrounded by police. The two panicked robbers take the bank employees hostage.

Police Detective Sergeant Eugene Moretti calls the bank and Sonny bluffs that he is prepared to kill the hostages. Sal assures Sonny that he is ready to kill if necessary. A security guard has an asthma attack and Sonny releases him as a display of good faith. Moretti convinces Sonny to step outside. Using the head teller as a shield, Sonny begins a dialogue with Moretti that culminates in his shouting “Attica! Attica!” to invoke the recent Attica Prison riot. The crowd begins cheering for Sonny. Sonny demands a vehicle to drive himself and Sal to the airport so they can board a jet. He also demands pizzas to be brought for the hostages, and for his wife to be brought to the bank. Sonny’s partner, Leon Shermer, arrives and reveals that the robbery was intended to pay for Leon’s sex reassignment surgery, and divulges that Sonny has children with his estranged wife, Angie.
