To survive the drought, he and his friends lead a double life, farming by day and robbing by night. When a big score turns bad and two cops are killed, the boys take off across the Canadian prairies, hoping to lose their pursuers in the Rocky Mountains. As they con, cheat, and charm their way west, John is confronted with the harsh realities of life as an outlaw, and must decide how much he is willing to sacrifice to stay one step ahead of the law. Based on an amazing true story.
