The story of the Newton gang, the most successful bank robbers in history, owing to their good planning and minimal violence.

Jess Newton: It is real. It is real fun.
When Willis is in jail talking to the investigator, Aldrich, Aldrich leans over to whisper something to him. In the first shot, taken from behind Willis, Aldrich is speaking into Willis's right ear.
