Comedy. A lighthearted tale, based on truth, of a Dublin criminal who delighted in pulling off the most outrageous heists, including one at the biggest jewellery store in the city and the theft of a priceless Caravaggio from Dublin's National Art Gallery - much to the annoyance of both the police and the IRA.
