He was a famous bank robber; his life had all the mystery and fun that hers lacks. She hungers for excitement: she is bored with her job, her glory days as prom queen are long past, and Wayne (her onetime prom king) just marks time on his night-shift job.

While Henry Manning (Paul Newman) seems feeble and helpless, Carol Ann McKay (Linda Fiorentino) suspects otherwise. Still, she can't quite prove that he's playing possum. She gets more and more frustrated until finally she goes to some very outrageous lengths to smoke him out. It's not that she wants to turn him in. Instead, she asks him if he might do her a favor in return for her silence: teach her his old line of work, and then join her and her husband Wayne (Dermot Mulroney) in a robbery of their own. But Henry has long since learned not to let his guard down, even for a minute. Especially when it comes to finding where the money is?

Produced by Ridley Scott, Charles Weinstock, Chris Zarpas, Christopher Dorr. Story by E. Max Frye. Screenplay by E. Max Frye and Topper Lilien & Carroll Cartwright. Directed by Marek Kanievska.
