The main character, Karen McCoy, is committed to rob banks. During the last robbery, her accomplices betray her, and Karen goes to prison for six years. Stepping out from behind the bars, she wants to start a new life. Her ex-husband and son are now a different family. Finding a job as a former prisoner is difficult, and even the surveillance officer harasses Karen, but the woman firmly decided to take the path of correction. Once she meets a petty criminal Barker, who turns out to be a “fan” of her criminal past. By chance, Barker talks about the release of Karen to criminal authority Jack Schmidt, the very same because of whom McCoy was imprisoned. Schmidt is trying to persuade McCoy to go on a new business, but Karen refuses. Then the bandits take her son hostage.
Karen forcibly agrees. In the shortest possible time, the group develops and makes a technically masterly penetration into the bank vault. However, at that moment when values need to be brought out, it turns out that Karen’s money is not of interest to others. It provokes the operation of the bank's security system. Karen and Barker leave, and everyone else is seized by the police. After that, taking with them a son and the money Schmidt owed her, Karen and Barker safely fly to Rio de Janeiro.

The real McCoy is an idiom that means something real, genuine, high class and quality. The roots of this expression go back to the Scottish clans, and it came into colloquial speech presumably during the "Prohibition" in the United States . It was then that Captain Bill McCoy, who imported the original Canadian and British whiskey , as well as fine wines, was famous for its high quality.
