They 'blow' the house rent on an expensive night out, but  Unfortunately, the Landlord’s daughter turns up the following morning and gives the boys 24-hour notice to pay up or quit.

Paul and Ortega  embark on an overnight scheme to recover the rent, leading to a dangerous encounter with an eccentric drug baron, a desperate robbery attempt, a gambling adventure, and an ego war with the neighborhood bully, Orlando.

PayDay will debut in cinemas on Friday, July 13, 2018.
