Synopsis: Doc McCoy knows everything there is to know about pulling off the perfect bank job. But there are some things he has forgotten—such as a partner who is not only treacherous but insane and a wife who is still an amateur. Worst of all, McCoy has forgotten that when the crime is big and bloody enough, there is no such thing as a clean getaway.
