Mike Mackenzie (Douglas Henshall) is a self-made businessman with a broken heart and too much time on his hands. He is incensed by wealthy patrons hiding works of art away in private collections and after an evening’s drinking with close friends Professor Gissing (Stephen Fry), art expert and banker Allan Cruickshank (Kenneth Collard), the trio devise a plan to rip-off one of the most high-profile targets in the country – Edinburgh’s private art collection owned by a national bank. By swapping priceless masterpieces stored in the gallery’s warehouse with brilliantly accurate forgeries Mike aims to save the paintings and win back Laura Stanton (Lenora Crichlow), the girl who broke his heart five years ago. But will the heist go to plan?
A love story – A heist with a heart – A very Scottish story – Entertaining, warm, witty and full of dramatic tension.
