Academy Award winner Al Pacino robs a bank to pay for a sex-change operation for his lover, Leon (Chris Sarandon). Based on a true story. On one of the hottest days of August 1972, three amateur bank robbers plan to hold up a Brooklyn bank. A nice simple robbery: Walk in, take the money, and run. Unfortunately, the supposedly uncomplicated heist suddenly becomes a bizarre nightmare as everything that could go wrong does.
