A bank robber begins to reevaluate his lawless career path after arriving in a small town and bonding with a retired poetry professor in this remake of director Patrice Leconte's 2002 crime thriller. Small banks are always easy targets. So when a scheming stranger (Larry Mullen, Jr.) rolls into town, he doesn't plan on staying long. But things start to get complicated when a benevolent former college professor (Donald Sutherland) offers the thief a warm bed to sleep in. Later, as the two men get to talking, their differences seem to diminish, and an unlikely friendship starts to form. And the more secrets they start to share, the more obvious it becomes that neither planned on ending up where they did in life. Likewise, both men soon begin to wonder what they've been missing by faithfully playing the roles they've fallen into.
