On a foggy night in Amsterdam, a man falls from a rooftop to the wet pavement below. It`s Alfie McQuinn, the notorious cat burglar, and he`s dying. As sirens wail in the distance, Alfie manages to get out two last words to his young son, March: "Find jewels."
But March learns that his father is not talking about a stash of loot. He`s talking about Jules, the twin sister March never knew he had. No sooner than the two find each other, they`re picked up by the police and sent to the world`s worst orphanage. It`s not prison, but it feels like it.
March and Jules have no intention of staying put. They know their father`s business inside and out, and they`re tired of being pushed around. Just one good heist, and they`ll live the life of riches and freedom most kids only dream about.
Watch out! There are wild kids on the loose and a crime spree coming . . .
