It should be easy to carry out a clever little heist. We've seen enough of them in movies, after all. Of course, most of the time, things go south, but why not try anyway? This time, the thieves aim to steal valuable artifacts from a university library in Kentucky. This film is a fast-paced, witty reenactment of what actually happened some years ago — but one that deliberately blurs the line between fact and fiction.
