The Veteran
A veteran pro burglar one day finds he has been outwitted by a dynamic young competitor.


A Young Kid hails a cab and he gets in. Then suddenly the cab doors are locked and The Young Kid is alarmed. In the front view mirror, he sees the driver, The Veteran, who says "We meet again."

Flashback to The Veteran, a top burglar who is still very fit for his age, who performs a spectacular break-in into a mansion at night. We follow him as he scales mountains, walls, breaks in cleverly, and silently like the incredible cat burglar he is, disabling alarms, he's still fit for his age. He goes in, cracks open the safe like a pro, opens the safe door, and --

The safe is empty. Only one small note. It reads: "Beat you to it, old man." The Veteran lunges toward the window and looks out, only to see his nemesis, The Young Kid, wave at him as the kid races away on his motorcycle in the morning sun.

Flash forward to the cab scene. "What's your name," The Veteran asks. "Vinny Tagliani, but my friends call me Fintech, and you can call me your worst nightmare," he answers. The Veteran says, "You're good. Reckless but good. I like that." The Young Kid looks away and says, "I beat you to it didn't I? You're getting old." The Veteran smiles, and says "Trust me, I can teach you a trick or two. Let's work together." A look of disbelief on The Young Kid's face, then a smile. "What did you have in mind?" he asks. "Let me tell you," The Veteran says, and we see the cab slowly roll off into the distance.
