It's the Summer of 1960 and introverted 14 year old, Walter, is unceremoniously dumped by his single mother, Mae, at the Texan farm of eccentric great uncles, Hub and Garth. Walter has never met them before, but legend has it, they were bank robbers, mafia hitmen - even Nazi war criminals. Whatever their past, one rumour is the most compelling to Mae: Hub and Garth have lots of money stashed away. So find the dough, she commands. But that is the least of Walter's worries. Hub and Garth aren't exactly the welcoming types and suddenly it looks like it's going to be a long, hard Summer. That is, until Walter stumbles upon a photo in an old trunk of a beautiful, exotic woman. And when he confronts Garth about it, his uncle reveals a past of incredibly exciting and daring experiences. True or not, Walter soon finds himself discovering his own sense of adventure, his own kind of happiness and life suddenly looks promising after all.
For 14 year old Walter (Haley Joel Osment), the thought of spending summer with his two crazy old great uncles on their farm in rural Texas fills him with dread. Eccentric and gruff, Hub and Garth McCann (Robert Duvall and Michael Caine) are rumoured to have been bank robbers, Mafia hit men and war criminals in their younger days. However, this summer Walter finds the truth of how the two unlikely heroes lived an adventure most people only dream of.
