Based on infamous true events, a famous thief, Brian Reader (Sir Michael Caine), pulls together a band of misfit criminals to plot the biggest bank heist in British history. The thieves manage to escape with allegedly over two hundred million British pounds worth of stolen jewels and money. When Police are called to the scene and the investigation starts, the cracks between the eccentric gang members begin to show as they row over how to share the goods and become increasingly distrustful of each other.
One high security vault. Millions up for grabs. One hell of a retirement fund.

The events depicted in this movie are, astonishingly, based on a true story. During the Easter bank holiday period of April 2015, a gang of middle-aged and O.A.P. veteran criminals really did break into the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit Company in central London using the methods depicted in this movie and stole somewhere between fourteen million to twenty-five million British pounds worth of valuables from safe deposit boxes (the exact amount is unclear as customers with safe deposit boxes didn't necessarily want to report what their boxes contained). The initial success and surprise of the robbery, however, was short-lived, as the perpetrators were caught within a matter of a few weeks by Police after modern crime solving methods and clumsiness by the thieves themselves resulted in a string of arrests.
