Both plans were flawless: break in to the museum, steal the masterpiece and let someone else take the fall. The only thing these master thieves didn’t see coming was each other.
The traveling masterpiece the Vol du Messager is on display at the Blackwren Museum of Fine Arts and, although it measures only 7.5” tall, its tiny size comes with a price tag of over a half million. Two thieves, a small-time cat burglar, Jane Kestrel, has only one shot at getting enough money together to send her talented little sister, Dee, to a prestigious art college. While the witty and charismatic Fox, a career criminal, is looking for ‘one last score’ to finish on a high note with the help of his tech-genius sidekick, Sheldon. In one twisting, turning cliffhanger after another the teams will have to race to the finish to see who is the better thieving duo, leaving one to cash in a hefty paycheck and the other to take the fall. The Vol du Messager may be a small painting in stature but what’s at stake is much bigger than these thieves could have imagined.
