Storyline

Set in 1961, Kempton Bunton, a 57-year-old bus driver and would-be playwright from Newcastle, steals Goya's portrait of the Duke of Wellington from London's National Gallery. At his trial, he charms the jury and is found not guilty on the grounds that he had never intended to keep or personally profit from taking the painting.
