The story of notorious Canadian bank robber Edwin Boyd (Scott Speedman), beginning with his return from duty in the Second World War. Dismayed by public indif­ference toward veterans, humiliated by his inability to provide for his children and his wife Doreen (Kelly Reilly), and seeing only disappointment in the face of his policeman father (Brian Cox), Eddie resorts to unlaw­ful activity.

What starts as small time bank robberies, evolves over time—and with experience—into a career that turns Boyd into postwar Toronto's public enemy number one.

  Canadian Connection: Filmed in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. Most of the cast members are Canadian.
