Jenny Bengtsson is a teacher living in Kalmar, Sweden, struggling to stay afloat during her divorce. Her best friend, Doctor Cecilia Stensson, has financial problems after failed investments in the stock market.

Every day they’re forced to take crap from students, parents, patients and bosses who all expect them to give more than they’re able to. They’re tired of women always being the ones stuck between family and career and constantly having to struggle to make ends meet. When they both realise that the future is anything other than bright, they decide to do something drastic, insane actually – to rob the main branch of the Stockholm Bank.

The Simple Heist tells the story that leads up to the crazy decision to rob a bank, the preparations, the heist itself and the aftermath: does the money solve all their problems or do they just get new ones? How are they supposed to drive a getaway car with a drunk teenager in the backseat? What’s the best way to commit breaking-and-entering when you have your grandkids with you? And how do you poison an entire biker gang?

The Simple Heist is a crime comedy drama about two women who’ve had enough.
