Synopsis

Based on the true story of Forrest Tucker (Robert Redford), a bank robber and escape artist who famously managed to escape from San Quentin State Prison at the age of 70 in a homemade kayak.

Following his great escape, Tucker embarks on a four-year crime spree, eluding local police detective John Hunt (Casey Affleck), who passionately pursues the convict in a desperate game of cat and mouse. Meanwhile, Tucker finds himself drawn to a woman named Jewel (Sissy Spacek), whom he meets on the side of the road during a police chase after one of his bank heists. Now he must work to hide his true identity from Jewel and outrun the police, all while continuing his impressive high profile capers.
