Francis Meehan, a career thief staring at life without parole, is awaiting sentencing at the Manhattan Correctional Center when a man makes him an offer he could refuse. It seems the man from Washington represents the presidential re-election campaign, which is in need of a little professional help. So they "outsource" Meehan, in return for a walk from all pending criminal charges, of course. All he has to do is steal a compromising video tape of the President before the other side springs an "October Surprise." A shrewd burglar, Meehan bites, and shows just how easy Watergate would have been had they left it to the professionals.
Facing life without parole, career thief Francis Meehan awaits sentencing in Manhattan when he's approached with an offer he can't refuse: all charges will be dropped if he steals an incriminating videotape that could cost the President of the United States his reelection.
