Synopsis

The Parole Officer is a comedy starring Steve Coogan as an honest but inept probation officer who moves from a small northern town to a big city where he witnesses a serious crime and is framed for murder. The only way he can prove his innocence is to break into a bank vault where the crucial piece of evidence is stored. He goes back to his home town to persuade three of his former clients to return to lives of crime and help him rob the bank.
