A famous thief in his younger years, 77 year-old widower Brian Reader (Michael Caine), pulls together a band of misfit criminals to plot an unprecedented burglary at the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit.
The thieves, all in their 60s and 70s except for one, employ their old-school thieving skills to plan the heist over the Easter holiday weekend. Posing as servicemen, they enter the deposit, neutralise the alarms, and proceed to drill a hole into the wall of the safe. Two days later, they escape with allegedly over £200 million worth of stolen jewels and money.
When the investigation starts, the cracks between the misfit gang members surface as they row over how to share the goods and become increasingly distrustful of each other. Meanwhile, the crime has become public knowledge, and a frenzy of speculations begins. As details come to light, both the British public and the media are captivated, and the investigation is followed with bated breath around the world until the criminals are eventually captured.
