Jackie Brown (Pam Grier) supplements her meager income as a stewardess by smuggling cash into the U.S. for gunrunner Ordell Robbie (Samuel L. Jackson), until the day an ATF agent and an L.A. cop bust her at the airport. The cops pressure her to help them bring down Ordell, threatening prison if she refuses. With a sympathetic bail bondsman, Jackie arrives at a bold plan to play the opposing forces against each other. Ordell’s confederates, Louis Gara (Robert De Niro) and Melanie Ralston (Bridget Fonda) who have agendas of their own, complicate matters. By appearing to cooperate with both sides, Jackie attempts to outfox them both and walk away with a half million-dollar payday.
