When a group of Boston thieves decide to pull one last big job. That's pretty much it. But the writers and director make this way more exciting than I did in that sentence. I like Affleck much better as a director than an actor. He is a great actor, but I feel like he is best when he is writing and directing. There is a great story here (based on a novel), great characters, and some great action. An intelligent, well made film. I am a Ben Affleck fan.
