- Synopsis / Plot
- Jackie Brown (Pam Grier) is an attractive flight attendant who supplements her income by smuggling cash _into_ the country for an illegal arms dealer--until the day federal agents bust her. The only way she'll stay out of jail is to set up a sting to bring in a half million dollars and bring down the gun runner. In this web of dangerous characters, she should be wondering: how will she stay alive? But all she's thinking about is: how can she make off with the money?
