Stander

Synopsis

After participating in the brutal killing of rioting blacks while in the line of duty, South African homicide/robbery captain, Andre Stander (Tom Jane) decided to defy the very system he was a part of and set off on an audacious crime spree: robbing banks during his lunch hour then returning to the scene of the crime to lead the investigation. Finally caught by the same police force he worked with, Stander was jailed and, subsequently, befriended Allan Heyl (David Patrick O'Hara) and Lee McCall (Dexter Fletcher). Following a daring jailbreak, the 'Stander Gang' committed a large number of bank heists which grew increasingly bolder over time. In the eyes of the public, their blatant disregard for authority made them South Africa's most popular anti-heroes. To the police, however, Stander and his gang were the most wanted men in the country.
