Synopsis

The unbelievable but mostly true story of four young men who mistake their lives for a movie and attempt one of the most audacious art heists in US history.
Taking the thrill of the heist genre and turning it inside out, this film blurs the line between truth and fiction in a wild story of money, movies and the search for meaning.
