Samuel Millar is a member of the Irish Republican Army and spends eight years in tough Irish prisons during the late 1970s and 1980s, where he takes part in the blanket protest in which political prisoners refuse to wear prison garb and are severely punished for it. He then comes to America under a different identity, reinvents himself as a family man and comic book shop owner. But then he helps pull off an armored truck heist, stealing more than $7 million from a Brink's truck and thus executing one of the most successful heists in U.S. history. Millar is eventually pardoned by President Bill Clinton and sent back to Ireland, where he reinvents himself once again, this time as a best-selling author of crime books.
