Synopsis

Mark Strong and Vera Farmiga star in this comedy drama based on the real-life bank robbery allegedly committed by the Ioanid Gang in 1959 in post-war Communist Romania. Members of the Ioanid Gang - Max Rosenthal (Strong), Alice Bercovich (Farmiga), Dumi Dorneanu (Tim Plester), Razvan Orodel (Joe Armstrong) and Iorgu Ristea (Christian McKay) - who were all resistance fighters in the Second World War, pull off a daring bank heist by pretending they are shooting a movie. They are later convicted and sentenced to death but, while waiting to be executed, the authorities order the group to take part in a recreation of the robbery which will be shot as a propaganda film. Are they all destined to meet the firing squad?
