Writer/director Robert Budreau fictionalizes the 1973 six-day Swedish bank robbery that inspired the term “Stockholm Syndrome”.

1973, Stockholm, Sweden: Self-styled outlaw Lars Nystrom, high on pills, wearing a wig, shades and a cowboy hat, walks into a bank, pulls out a machine gun and fires into the ceiling, cranks up his portable radio, then declares ‘the party has begun’. He takes two bank workers hostage and demands his friend Gunnar is released from prison, $1million, and a getaway car.

As negotiations with the police reach a deadlock, one of the hostages, married mother Bianca, initially terrified by being held captive by the erratic Lars, becomes sympathetic, then strangely attracted to him. As the net tightens, and Lars is forced to take desperate measures, Bianca finds herself siding with criminal over cops.

The film stars Ethan Hawke, Noomi Rapace, Mark Strong, Christopher Heyerdahl, Bea Santon, Thorbjorn Harr, and Shanti Roney.
