According to the logline, it is "an interlocking universe of crime stories." As per the official description, Hunnam's character, Leo, is “a brilliant master thief who sees all the angles and specialises in plans with no guns and no violence. Like a chess player, Leo thinks three moves ahead. Other crooks think he’s a coward, especially compared to his father Tommy, who went to jail for murdering the most feared man in the city, Teeg Lawless.”
