Description

Tyler Schwanke’s debut is a fast-moving, gritty, and hilarious tribute to Hollywood heist movies . . . and anyone who’s ever had a dream.

Millie has one goal: to make a movie in tribute to her late father. At the Manhattan Movie Academy, run by Ricky O’Naire, her favorite director, she’s determined to make it happen. But before she can finish her project, the academy is shut down. Six months later, she sees a preview for the new O’Naire movie—and he’s stolen her idea.

Outraged, she reunites her former film crew to steal the movie and hold it for ransom days before its high-profile premiere. Putting their training and film-nerd backgrounds into action, they pull off the heist in extravagant fashion. But when an unexpected femme fatale uncovers their plan, it’s not long before a trio of hardened criminals want in on the action.

With the stakes now higher than she ever imagined—and her life on the line—Millie has no choice but to lead them all through a dazzling series of moves and countermoves that result in an ending not even Hollywood could see coming.
