Based on a true story
Forrest Tucker is a man of style, a man of impeccable manners – he is in every way a gentleman. With 18 successful prison breaks and a lifetime of robbing banks, he is also the most notorious stick-up artist of the twentieth century.
Our story follows Forrest in his twilight years, from his audacious escape from San Quentin to his frenetic flurry of robberies with The Over the Hill Gang and his extraordinarily successful solo years.
Just as he has found the love of his life in Jewel, he also meets his match in Detective John Hunt, a man as sharp and relentless as he is. Hunt will never be as intrigued and entertained as he is in the years he spends in pursuit of this career criminal.
If the Sundance Kid were alive today, he would be Forrest Tucker.
