In Chicago, Veronica’s husband Harry is killed during a heist. According to aspiring politician and local criminal Jamal Manning, Harry owes him $2 million and he tells Veronica that she has one month to produce the money. Harry leaves his wife a notebook containing the details of his past and planned heists which Veronica uses to track down and enlist the other widows whose husbands were killed alongside her own to help with a debt-settling robbery. Meanwhile a rivalry develops between Manning and incumbent politician Jack Mulligan which exposes race and class conflict, along with political corruption.
