Ramon however, offers Eastman a deal. Help him rob a rival dealer for his college tuition in exchange for performing the mercy kill. Rolley, a power broker who had many times over made hundreds of millions and given all but ten dollars away, currently at the tale end of his reoccurring psychotic episode, agrees to the armed robbery.
