Entering a bank one day, he makes the spontaneous decision to stick up one of the tellers. Easily getting away with a big wad of money, he begins robbing dozens of banks, all the while refining his technique, adding various disguises and using his position on the police force to send investigators around in circles.
When his best friend (Ashley Taylor) finally busts him and he is sentenced to 30 years in prison, it looks like Stander's story is over. But he teams up with two cellmates, petty thief Lee (Dexter Fletcher) and fellow bank robber Allan (David O'Hara), to stage a daring prison break.
Teaming up to form the Stander Gang, the trio become national celebrities as they go on a bank robbery spree the likes of which the country has never seen. They rob banks twice, stick up a bank literally under the noses of the task force sent to trap them, and always get away clean.
As the robberies grow more brazen, and the police manhunt grows more intense, Stander begins to fantasize about getting away to Florida with his wife. But first, he and the boys intend to pull one, last score at Johannesburg Airport.
