Jackie Brown is the story of a middle-aged flight attendant, Jackie Brown (Pam Grier), who gets busted smuggling gun money from Mexico to Los Angeles for her arms dealer boss, Ordell Robbie (Samuel L. Jackson).  When she gets caught with ten thousand dollars in cash along with cocaine in her purse by Federal Agent Ray Nicolette (Michael Keaton) and L.A. Detective Mark Dargus (Michael Bowen), they offer to set her free if she participates in an operation designed to bring down Ordell.

Meanwhile Ordell asks the 56 year-old Max Cherry (Robert Forster), who runs a bail bond business, to post bail to release Jackie Brown with the intention of eliminating her.  Facing jail time for her silence and certain death from Ordell for her cooperation, Jackie Brown suspects Ordell’s intentions and decides instead to double-cross both parties by plotting a complicated confidence game and enlists the help of Max to plot and steal half a million dollars from Ordell without tipping off the agents.
