A bank robbery in a small town gets out of hand. Police and hostage takers start a nail-biting cat-and-mouse game that holds the town in its grip for an entire day. The series alternately looks at events from the perspective of the police, the press as well as that of the bank robbers, the victims and their families. Each new instalment lifts a tiny piece of the veil, and the viewers gradually realize there’s more to this than meets the eye.
