Criminal Intelligence officer Alice Grant offers Horace Lange, a highly talented international thief currently in prison, the deal of a lifetime: freedom in exchange for his criminal talents at the service of the police.
A modern Robin Hood who grew up in a circus, Horace must team up with Alice, a tough, attractive, street-smart cop.
Their mission: busting powerful people, whose connections and money keep them above the law. If their operation is exposed, Alice’s career will be shot and Horace will be thrown back in prison.
For complete secrecy, the circus becomes their headquarters, and its professionals, Horace’s friends and family, prove to be fearless and creative allies…

But when the homeowner and his wife return unexpectedly, Horace is caught red-handed, and hired by his victims to find their kidnapped daughter!
