Dutch law states that an art thief has legal ownership of stolen private art after 20 years. In Amsterdam, Erik and Sophie are bright, loved-up art students with an audacious plan: to steal a Van Gogh from the private collection of Dutch millionaire Hector Van Doran then wait twenty years to sell the painting. The first part of the plan succeeds. Fast-forward nineteen years and 364 days later. Erik, Sophie and Hector all meet on the eve of the day that Erik and Sophie will legally own the painting. Much has changed in twenty years and everything's up for grabs - power, passion, greed, love, money and dreams. Who will side with whom and what were the true consequences of the twenty year stretch?
