We see the character of Jackie Cogan who is played by Brad Pitt. He believes that there is a way to figure who stole the game. All the fingers point to the person who actually hosts the game. Therefore, Cogan is hired to track down these people in the hope that the truth behind the robbery will be found.

People have been asking questions with respect to the ending of the movie. They usually ask why did Cogan kill the person who was organising the game? He eventually found out that there is no connection between the robbery and the host of the game.
