Charlie Croker - a cocky, cool, jack-the-lad
small time London crook inherits the plans
to an almost impossible robbery when he
gets out of prison. It's a big job, and
needs some serious backing, which he finds
in the form of Mr. Bridger, who is a big
time British mobster who conducts his
'business' from the prison Croker spent
time in. Croker gets his backing, along
with a beating (for breaking into Bridger's
toilet to give him the plans) and begins
the task of preparing for the job - to
nick $4 million in gold bullion from under
the noses of the Mafia in the heart of
Turin, and escaping in three Mini Coopers
and a coach.
