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.
They’re tired of women always being the ones stuck between family and career and constantly having to struggle to make ends meet. So, when they both realise that the future is anything other than bright, they decide to do something drastic: rob the main branch of the Stockholm Bank.
But will the money solve all their problems or just create 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 grandchildren with you? And how do you poison an entire biker gang?
