A young couple prepares to rob the diner where they are eating. Earlier the same day, Jules and Vince, two hitmen dressed in a black suit and working for Wallace retrieve a briefcase containing something shiny and kill most of the young people who were hiding it in their shared apartment. Later, Vince appears alone at Wallace's night club with the briefcase, wearing a grey t-shirt. Wallace is giving money to Butch, a boxer, to lose his next match. Wallace then tells Vince that he must take Mia, his wife, out to dinner the same evening. The dinner, at a 1950s-themed restaurant goes well, they even win a twist contest. Mia asks Vince to come back with her to her place. While Vince is not looking, she mistakes heroin found in Vince's jacket for cocaine and overdoses on it. Vince takes her to his dealer's place, they fumble with an adrenaline kit but manage to save her life. In the meanwhile, Butch not only wins his match but kills his opponent. He then joins his girlfriend Fabienne in a motel and they plan to flee by train the next morning. But Fabienne has forgotten to pack his gold watch, inherited from his great-grandfather. Butch does not want to lose his watch, so he goes back to his apartment where Jules is waiting to kill him on Wallace's order. Butch manages to kill the hitman and then drives away. By pure coincident, he's seen by Wallace, whom he runs over. Both can still run and chase each other on foot; Butch finds refuge in a pawn shop whose owner, Maynard, kidnaps them. Maynard and his accomplice rape Wallace, but Butch manages to escape his ties and kills them, freeing Wallace, who tells Butch to keep quiet about the incident and leave Los Angeles. He picks up Fabienne and they drive away. Earlier, at the apartment where they are retrieving the briefcase, Jules and Vince take one person hostage, but Vince kills him in the car by accident. The find refuge at a friend of Jules' and as they don't know what to do but have to do it before the friend's wife comes back home from her night shift, they call a fixer for help that tells them how to clean and hide the gore in the car. They change their bloody black suits for t-shirts and shorts and take the car to a junkyard. On their way back to Wallace's they have lunch at the diner. Jules wants to give up his life as a hitman. He manages to convince the couple to take his own cash, give up on the robbery and to go away.
