It's the 1950s in San Francisco. Joe Lyons is serving a 40-year sentence on the infamous prison island of Alcatraz for robbing an armored transport. They say escape is impossible, and Joe's only chance to prove them wrong is with the help of his wife and partner in crime, Christine. Meanwhile Mickey, the third member of the gang, is determined to take the loot of the robbery all for himself. Naturally, the police are quite interested in recovering it as well. Unfortunately for all of them, Joe is the only one who knows where it's hidden. In these circumstances friendships, loyalties, and even a marriage will be tested.

Players will switch between the roles of inmate Joe and his wife Christine in this point-and-click adventure game. Apart from solving puzzles, they also have to try and determine who they can and cannot trust. Depending on their decisions, the story can come to one of several possible conclusions.
