Deeply affected by the indiscriminate killing he witnesses as white police officer in South Africa,Andres Stander (played by Tom Jane) makes a decision to defy the very system has has spent a lifetime enforcing. Turning his back on the law, he masterminds a series of audacious bank robberies and befriending outlaws Allan Heyl and Lee McCall goes on a cross-country robbing spree. Known only as the "Stander Gang," the three commit dozens of bank robberies - heists that grow increasingly bolderover time. In the eyes of the public, the gang's disrespect for authority makes them near-lengendary folk heroes. To the South African government, however, the former police officer is a cause of embarressment, and the Stander gang quickly becomes the most wanted men in the country.
