In 1934, Wilma McClatchie's husband is shot down by police attempting to evict the McClatchies from their farm. Wilma's entry into a bank-robbing career occurs from a need for righteous revenge against Morgan Crawford, the banker who foreclosed on her home and is now running for governor of Texas.
She tells her two daughters, Polly and Billie Jean: "The best way to kill a man is to destroy his dreams." So, among other things, she abducts Crawford's son, Jordan, and turns him into a willing gang member with her daughters' help. Also aiding and abetting the McClatchies in the plan is an Eastern journalist, who sees the thieving clan as his front-page ticket.
