After doing time in jail for a crime he did not commit, Willis Newton (Matthew McConaughey) attempts to go legit and work as a farmhand.  He falls in love with the proprietor's daughter and intends to marry her; but when her father discovers Newton's criminal past, the wedding is called off.

Destitute and depressed, Willis convinces his brothers to participate in a series of bank robberies and use the resultant funds to purchase an oilrig.  The brothers devise a foolproof method and successfully loot banks across the nation.  Can they at last realize the American dream, albeit immorally?
