The world’s best art forger (Travolta) makes a deal with a crime syndicate to get an early release from prison, but in return he agrees to pull off an impossible heist-he must forge a painting by Claude Monet, steal the original from a museum and replace it with a replica so perfect that no one will notice. He enlists the help of his father (Plummer) and son (Sheridan) and together they plan the heist of their lives.
