After escaping a Michigan prison, a daring career criminal assumes a new identity in Canada, marries the love of his life, then goes on to rob 59 banks and jewellery stores while a rogue task force sets out to take him down. Based on the incredible true story and best-selling novel The Flying Bandit.
….But as the stakes become higher and the jobs become increasingly daring, Robert finds himself being hunted by a newly formed task force headed by DETECTIVE JOHN SNYDES, a brilliant cop determined to take him down.
What ensues is a cross-country pursuit set against the backdrop of the 80’s with Robert and Snydes locked in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse, and each man determined to outsmart the other. No matter the cost.
