Film Synopsis

An unlikely thief. An unthinkable theft. An unsolved mystery. Until now. This is the story of the man who stole the Mona Lisa from the Louvre in 1911, his 84-year-old daughter who thought he did it for patriotic reasons, and the filmmaker who spent more than 30 years trying to find the truth.
