The following is the synopsis of a film called "Momentum". What is that Alex being pulled into (into one last heist?)? It feels as if the sentence were not complete. Thanks!

"Alex, a mysterious thief, is pulled in by her former partner for one last heist. She quickly finds it was never just about the diamonds. A brutal murder sparks a cat and mouse chase between Alex and a master assassin. Now she must uncover the lies behind the heist and discover the secrets behind the men who have made her a target."

    She is being enticed by her ex-partner to take part in one last robbery. (The implication being that they have performed robberies together before, but this is to be the last one.)
     
    "for" in "for one last heist" = for the goal of, for the purpose of committing.

    Since a heist is not something one can get literally pulled into, as opposed to being pulled into a body of water by a rope,:) the whole phrase is figurative/metaphorical, but definitely implies a struggle of wills and a reluctance.
