Professional burglar that Jimmy is, he basically lacks the talent for his chosen profession. So it’s small wonder he bungles the planned bank robbery and ends up behind bars for five years. But the enforced holidays don’t fit in with his plans at all. The only solution is to make a quick escape. To this end, Jimmy persuades his fellow inmates to put on a musical, hoping to do a bunk during the premiere.
